Happy 25th Anniversary to the Web-inventor Tim Berners-Lee on the Importance and Meaning of the 'World Wide Web'

Submitting a proposal on March 12, 1989, outlining an information system that would later become the World Wide Web, Tim Berners-Lee changed the world forever. Back in 1989, the Internet existed, but there weren't any websites. This accomplished creator wanted access to information, and since there wasn't any, he built it. Twenty-five years later, information has never been easier to share.

 

On the 25th WWW anniversary, the Oxford University graduate urges Internet users to push for free web access for everyone. He believes the Web has transformed education, healthcare, commerce, and democracy all around the world. Berners-Lee says he is concerned about the future of the Web, as he believes Internet users' rights are being restricted. Therefore, he calls for every individual to join in and build the future standards for the Web.

In the webat25.org campaign, which celebrates the Web's birthday by showing birthday messages, together with a video message by its creator, Tim Berners-Lee feels all of us should consider three key challenges:

 

  • How to connect about two-thirds of world's population who don't have Web access?

  • Who, why and under which rules is personal data collected?

  • How to make the Web accessible to any device?

 

Tim Berners-Lee feels that these issues, once tackled, could bring the Web to reach its potential. This implies that everyone would have web access, on any device, and would easily share ideas, knowledge and creativity. Tim stresses that the Web was built by the people, for the people, and as such, he believes everyone should get involved to shape its future.

 

See the video message in which Tim Berners-Lee wishes the world a happy 25th WWW anniversary.
