Prime News, International, (Washington DC), March 12:-March 12 is a special day in the history of the Internet – it is the birthday of the World Wide Web.
It was on March 12 in 1989 that British physicist Tim Berners-Lee, working for Europe’s physics lab CERN, proposed a decentralised system of information management. It signalled the birth of the World Wide Web that is today used by billions around the world to access the Internet.
To celebrate the World Wide Web’s 30th birthday, Google came up with a special doodle to remind netizens of how things were in early days. “Not to be confused with the internet, which had been evolving since the 1960s, the World Wide Web is an online application built upon innovations like HTML language, URL “addresses,” and hypertext transfer protocol, or HTTP”, said Google in a blog post.
Google isn’t the only one celebrating the birth of the World Wide Web though. Twitter users are also having a field day with hilarious birthday posts and tweets.
To mark the 30th birth anniversary of the World Wide Web, its designer Tim Berners-Lee said on Monday that the World Wide Web must emerge from “adolescence”.
