Despite it's virtual ubiquity, scientific and technical computing remains one area in which web technology has made few inroads. However, recent trends in web tech present a number of opportunities for expansion in this space. In this talk we'll discuss the needs scientific computing users, the strengths and weaknesses of web tech compared to existing solutions, and the opportunites we see to address those needs. We'll introduce the Vademecum Notebook, our first experiment directed towards addressing some of those needs. Finally, we'll explain why we think Mozilla is particularly well-suited to lead the charge, and we'll outline ways for you to get involved.
