Google celebrates the 30 th anniversary of the birth of World Wide Web with a doodle. The doodle shows the earlier days of computing. On March 12, 1989 British physicist Tim Berners Lee gave an idea of a decentralized system for information management.
The concept gave birth to today’s www, which is used by millions worldwide. He also proposed hypertext words which connects pages by clicking on designated keywords in a page. Doodle illustrates this technology with block graphics which were common those days. The globe in computer screen revolves slowly-a silent reminder to the slow download speed era.
Google elucidated in a blog post, “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”
Berners Lee recently, praised the opportunities that web has given and extoled how it made life much easier. However, he warned, “It has also created opportunity for scammers, given a voice to those who spread hatred, and made all kinds of crimes easier to commit.“
