30 Years of the World Wide Web
Today marks 30 years since the creation of the World Wide Web. I’m not going to lie, I can’t imagine a life where the Web doesn’t exist, or even a moment where I’m not using some kind of website. It’s been a wild 30 years in terms of Web development, that I know we can ALL agree on.
Sir Tim Berners Lee is an English Engineer and Computer Scientist and just so happens to be the absolute legend that created the World Wide Web. I can safely say that without his creative genius, we’d all be out of a job! Cheers Tim, I appreciate it.
What Kind of World Would It Be Without It?
My mum likes to tell me the story of how when she was little, their school had to share one computer per classroom and fight over who got to play on it next. I even remember playing on our first ever computer. It came in this massive box that must have been the size of a small elephant, but I remember how excited I was just to be near one that was our very own.
To be fair, we didn’t actually own an internet router for years after we bought the damn thing, but eventually, we actually entered the 21st century and I got to scroll the Web at my own leisure! After that moment, I was hooked, just like everyone else.
Tim Said ‘Hold My Beer’ and Created a Masterpiece
The world has developed a lot since the creation of the World Wide Web (not to be confused with the Internet). We scroll through websites and programmes all day without a second thought.
Imagine a world where things weren’t so convenient. Imagine not having such a vast collection of information at your fingertips within any moment in the day, for the rest of your days. Mind = Blown. I think we all need to take a moment and appreciate the effort and the development of the Web, as we definitely don’t seem to be able to do without it.
