Catch up with a Davis web pioneer on 'Davisville'

Kimball Sargeant, president of the Davis Community Network and one of the first people in town to have a web address nearly 20 years ago, talks about the network and technology on the latest “Davisville.”

The volunteer-run nonprofit started in 1993 with a Caltrans grant to look into telecommuting, a new idea at the time. Davis Community Network has evolved, and among other things now provides free website tools and training to more than 200 Davis nonprofits.

“Davisville,” hosted by Bill Buchanan, airs on Mondays at 5:30 p.m., Tuesdays at 4:30 p.m., and Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. and 10:30 p.m. The interview with Sargeant — an attorney who is interested in technology, but does not see himself as a technologist — will air through Jan. 26. It can also be heard anytime (look for the Jan. 17th program) in the “Davisville” archives at .
