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

Google Doodle celebrates World Wide Web's 30th birthday

Jeff Jaffe, CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium, said, "There are very few innovations that have truly changed everything".

Google has dedicated its home page doodle to the World Wide Web to mark the system's 30th anniversary.

British physicist Tim Berners-Lee, on March 12, 1989, while working for Europe's physics lab CERN, proposed a decentralised system of information management which eventually signaled the birth of the World Wide Web which is now being used by millions of people all over the globe.

Berners-Lee, who previous year launched a development platform called "Solid" aimed at giving users control of their data, described a frightening future if we do not rise to the challenge of privacy protection.

Or the user should keep it on the front side of his shirt's pocket or coat's pocket so the camera app can see the things around. Since announcing the app a year ago , Google said it has been "testing and improving the quality" of the app's results.

Berners-Lee spelled out what he believes are the web's biggest issues, which include state-sponsored hacking and attacks, criminal behavior, and online harassment. The fact is that www is a group of pages that you see online, while the Internet is a huge network through which computers and devices across the world are interconnected.

Speaking at a "Web@30" conference at CERN, Berners-Lee acknowledged that a sense among many who are already on the Web has become: "Whoops!"

English scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the WWW in 1989 and wrote the first web browser in 1990.

As of late 2018, half of the world was online, with the other half often struggling to get access. "We need to keep it open and free, fighting for net neutrality, and we must think about privacy and owning your own data and how social networks should really control hate speech", Berners-Lee told an audience at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), near Geneva, on Tuesday. The birth of the www, later to be known as the Internet, took place with the launching of the paper "Information Management: A Proposal", the work of Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist. His actual plan is called the "Contract for the Web".

This is nearly 9 trillion digits more than the previous world record , which was set in November 2016 by Peter Trueb. Talking about her journey, she says, "When I was a kid, I didn't have access to supercomputers".

Despite the fact that "internet" and "World Wide Web" have become nearly interchangeable terms, they are in fact different concepts.

He also called for a response to the "unintended negative consequences" of the web, which he said had led to "the outraged and polarised tone and quality of online discourse". His foundation is working with web companies and governments on a Contract for the Web, which will "establish clear norms, laws and standards that underpin the web". "The fight for the web is one of the most important causes of our time", he added.

He assured that the web foundation was working with governments, companies and citizens to make the web safer.
