World Wide Web (www) marks 28yrs existence
|World Wide Web (www) marks 28yrs existence by Editor: 4:37 pm On March 12, 2017|
As the World Wide Web (www) marks its 28years in existence, its inventor, Sir Tim Berners-Lee says that the web has lived up to its vision.
Berners-Lee said in a statement on Sunday in Lagos that March 12 marked 28 years since he submitted his original proposal for the web.
He said that he imagined the web as an open platform that would allow everyone, everywhere to share information.
“In many ways, the web has lived up to this vision, though it has been a recurring battle to keep it open,’’ he said.
“It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want for everyone.
“Today, we are working with more than 160 partner organisations to advance our mission in over 70 countries.
“We are helping to change the lives of over two billion people by connecting everyone, raising voices and enhancing participation through the open web.
“We are building a future in which the web empowers everyone, everywhere, to take part in building a fairer world,’’ the web inventor said.
Berners-Lee said that the Web Foundation blended powerful advocacy, cutting-edge research and practical innovation to build a better web for all.
