This is the report from the first workshop (Sept 29 - Oct 1 1993) held when be began the development work that has ultimately lead to the formation of OPeNDAP (and DAP2, DAP4, Hyrax, et cetera). It's an interesting document from several perspectives, particularly for the things that have remained largely constant for nearly twenty years in the often fast-changing world of the web. Note that the original design did not make use of the web infrastructure - that was not folded into the design until 1994, when NCSA's Mosaic browser really gained traction. Note that the report is a postscript file.
