Tech Talk: Akamai's Ravi Maira

The internet content delivery specialist's vice president of web experience explains why websites are thing of the past and why usability and quality of information is critical for making the right connection.

Speaking after the release of Akamai’s quarterly State of the Internet report, the company’s US-based vice president of web experience Ravi Maira talks to Technology Spectator about the future of websites, why US firms aren't obsessing over Google's Fiber project and how fibre technology will impact the internet. 

Harrison Polites: Thank you for talking to Technology Spectator. First question, what is web experience, and why is it important for Australian businesses?
