I wonder where they're getting that 30 year figure?
Http is only 28, while the arpanet was already spanning multiple countries forty years ago.


edit: looks like he founded w3c. So basically coined the term 'world wide web'. Only he did it in October, 25 years ago...?

I'm still confused about this articles claim.

They helped the auto body shop and egg markets thrive.

Back then we called forum moderators "Police Officers".

The World Wide Web Is 30 Today.

The greatest weapon of mass destruction ever created.

Now blow out your cyber candles, and make a wish.

20 years of use out of 28 day trial. Maybe I should send the author a few bucks...

I switched away from mIRC to quassel a few years back.

It has a frontend and backend, so you can leave it connected on a server and connect in from your pc, phone, etc.

Honestly I love the internet , But IMO it's creation is worse then that of a Nuclear bomb and it's probably taken more lives .

Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist, invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989, while working at CERN. The web was originally conceived and developed to meet the demand for automated information-sharing between scientists in universities and institutes around the world.
