Happy Birthday World Wide Web!

Happy Birthday World Wide Web!

Last week the world wide web had its 30th birthday.

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee and other scientists at CERN, , were frustrated because they were unable to share the experiments and data stored on their many different computers. He proposed a system whereby information in one part of the globe was connected to every other part – easily searched, available to all and not controlled by anyone.

That vision of universal connectivity became the world wide web.

 

If you’d asked me 10 years ago, I would have said humanity is going to do a good job with this. If we connect all these people together, they are such wonderful people they will get along. I was wrong.

– Tim Berners-Lee

 

As we share in this video published by CNBC- the internet isn’t what Tim Berners-Lee pictured when he invented the WWW.
