Sir Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal in March 1989 called “Information Management: A Proposal“. By 1991 this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web.

Today web turns 30 years old. Let’s celebrate the day by remembering the old days when we used dial-up modems and most web pages were not bloated mess of third party plug-ins that take ages to load even with fastest broadband.

    The responsibility for a sustainable digital future

    March 12, 2019, we celebrate the 30th anniversary of the “World Wide Web,” Tim Berners-Lee’s ground-breaking invention.

    In just 30 years, this flagship application of the internet has forever changed our lives, our habits, our way of thinking and seeing the world. Yet, this anniversary leaves a bittersweet taste in our mouth: the initial decentralized and open version of the Web, which was meant to allow users to connect with each other, has gradually evolved to a very different version, centralized in the hands of giants who capture our data and impose their standards.

    Www:n keksijä: Netti on kehittynyt monissa asioissa ihan vääriin suuntiin

    Tällä viikolla 30 vuotta täyttäneen internetin tulevaisuudesta käydään kovaa vääntöä. Netti on kehittynyt monissa asioissa ihan vääriin suuntiin ja tavalla, joita World Wide Webin keksijäkään ei olisi osannut etukäteen ennustaa.

    “Vuosien varrella internet on muuttunut dramaattisesti ja tavalla, jota kukaan ei olisi osannut ennustaa. Verkon moniin hienoihin asioihin kuuluvat Wikipedia ja blogit, mutta näiden vastapainoksi netissä on myös todella ilkeitä ilmiöitä”, Sir Tim sanoi juhlapuheessaan.

    The web in 30 years? It’ll be beyond our imagination, says Tim Berners-Lee

    Working out where the web will go next is hard. But figuring out where we would like it to go is a little easier, says the inventor of the world wide web.

    Tim Berners-Lee wants us to build a better World Wide Web

    If we give up now, “the web will not have failed us, we will have failed the web” says Berners-Lee 30 years after the inception of the Web

    In the letter, posted on Monday, Berners-Lee said that it would be “defeatist” to assume the web couldn’t be changed for the better in the next 30 years. He said that although it had come along way, we should reflect on how far we have yet to go.
