The Web is a platform
Electricity is a platform used by many inventors to create a variety of gadgets that make our lives easier. Internet, created in the late 60s, was the platform used by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 to invent the Web. The World Wide Web abbreviated WWW or the Web, is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators URL, interlinked by hypertext links, and can be accessed via the Internet.
Anyone can publish a page by uploading it to a web server. Anyone can read that page by typing its address into a web browser. This makes it very easy for people to share documents even if they are using what would otherwise be incompatible computers. In fact, that’s exactly why Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web.
What the inventor has to say about his invention?
Some people point out that the Web can be used for all the wrong things. Other people say how their lives have been saved because they found out about the disease they had on the Web, and figured out how to cure it. I think the main thing to remember is that any really powerful thing can be used for good or evil.
What the Web is made of is up to us.
Here is my hope. The Web is a tool for communicating. With the Web, you can find out what other people mean. You can find out where they are coming from. The Web can help people understand each other. – Tim Berners-Lee
The web was created on those values.
The future of the Web
The thing I love most about businesses is their ability to transform the world for the better. We live in a world where two guys can found Google in a garage, creating an incalculable benefit to the world, and profit for their efforts. That – to me – is one of the greatest wonders of civilization. What comes next is up to you and me.
2016 has marked the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web. What's coming next is up to us.
