Over 300 delegates from industry, government and academia attended the events in person, with an additional 500 watching online, and many more following the #websci10 hashtag. Our celebration featured the exciting initiatives happening in our global network of labs, the Web Observatory, as well as debates on Trust and the Web, the role of the Web during elections, and the launch of our Web Science Manifesto.
