World Wide Web celebrates its 30th anniversary
On the 30th anniversary of the birth of the World Wide Web, the netizens celebrated the creation which led to a revolution and is helping the world to connect relentlessly.
12th March 1989 was celebrated as the beginning of the ‘www’ era which was created by an employee at European Research institute CERN in Switzerland. On this note, British engineer and computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee opined that hat the original dream that led to its development is in danger.
The internet is the global network of computers that are able to communicate with one another and dates back to the US military’s ARPANET developed in the 60s. The web, on the other hand, is the public’s main way of accessing this network.
NeXT Computer was used by Sir Tim Berners-Lee as the world's first web server and also to write the first web browser in 1990. "Given how much the web has changed in the past 30 years, it would be defeatist and unimaginative to assume that the web as we know it can't be changed for the better in the next 30. If we give up on building a better web now, then the web will not have failed us. We will have failed the web", posted lee on his blog.
He also asked the governments to decipher the laws and regulations in accord with the digital age to make the market more competitive. Sir Tim Berners-Lee opined that the web is for everyone and collectively shall hold the power to change that.
