The World Wide Web

by Akshay Ugale

What better way to start my new tech blog by wishing the world wide web a very happy birthday! Actually, wishing it a very happy 27th birthday to be precise.

Yes, you did read that right. It was today that is on 30th April 1993, 27 years ago that the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) released the rights for WORLD WIDE WEB (WWW) software in the public domain. Tim Berners-Lee whose brainchild the world wide web had designed it for a very different purpose. Lee had designed and invented the ‘www’ for CERN to accumulate the data, the huge data which was scattered in different places of CERN to be compiled into one single place. Although after realizing what ‘www’ could actually do Berners-Lee and CERN decided to release the code for the Web, believing that software development by hundreds of web enthusiasts at that time, and millions of people in the future, would always stay one step ahead of any company that tried to control the web or force people to pay to use it.

Their vision was absolutely true at that time as the wonders that web did in the coming years was just phenomenal and change the world scenario drastically making humans more advanced, more intelligent and sharper. Berners Lee and CERN definitely deserve a big thank you on this occasion for the decision that they made 27 years ago.

The real underlying question that needs everyone’s attention today is, does the original idea of Berners Lee to open web for free for everyone so everyone gets free knowledge stands true in this current era of the paid dot com bubble?
