At 30, World Wide Web 'not the web we wanted,' inventor says

Google Doodle celebrates World Wide Web's 30th birthday

Web inventor calls for 'fight' to protect internet on its 30th birthday

The celebration kicked off with a short panel discussion involving Berners-Lee and a group of scientists and industry partners at CERN outside Geneva on Tuesday morning, which was part of a 30-hour trip by the father of the WWW who would then travel to London and later to Lagos, Nigeria, for a series of celebrating activities. He wrote the first proposal on creating a new system for organizing information. Speaking to reporters on Monday, he said he came up with the idea of the World Wide Web thanks to a "random program" ordered by his old boss at CERN, Mike Sendall. This browser prepared the way for internet availability for large numbers of people through home computers.

In 1992, Berners-Lee needed a photo to test out the World Wide Web's new image-hosting capabilities.

The conference, which brought together internet and tech experts, also gave CERN the chance to showcase its reputation as an open-source incubator of ideas. "They are all stepping back ... realizing that this web thing that they thought was cool is actually not necessarily serving humanity very well", he said.

UEFA open investigation into Neymar over his comments on VAR
Neymar blasted ref Damir Skomina's late penalty decision on Instagram , going on strongly on VAR too. "There is no penalty". In the heat of the moment, it's quickly typed into a smart phone".

Reiterating his optimism on the technology he created, Berners-Lee wrote, "given how much the web has changed in the past 30 years, it would be defeatist and unimaginative to assume that the web as we know it can't be changed for the better in the next 30".

Sir Tim said the Foundation was working with governments and other organisations on building the contract, but called on politicians and wider society to do more to help build a better web and ensure the contract was not a "list of quick fixes". Businesses are asked to keep internet prices low so many people can use the web. Companies are to make the internet affordable, respect privacy and develop technology that will put people - and the "public good" - first. Citizens are to create and to cooperate and respect "civil discourse", among other things. Berners-Lee was just trying to troubleshoot an annoying issue when he composed his proposal. "If we dream a little and work a lot, we can get the web we want", he added.
