oogle Doodle marked the 30 years of the innovation of World Wide Web today, on March 12, 2019 with a GIF doodle, which featured an old, plugged-in computer with a rotating globe.
The inventor of WWW, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, was 33 when he first submitted the ‘Information Management: A Proposal’ for World Wide Web while working at Europe’s CERN lab.
He submitted his proposal on March 12, 1989, which led to the invention of World Wide Web. Today, it nearly has 2 billion websites online.
Berners started out with his invention by typing out the basic HTML language, the HTTP application, and WorldWideWeb.app, which became the first web browser and page editor. And by 1991, the external Web servers were up and running.
The web was made public in April 1993, after which the first search engine was launched called Mosaic.
The World Wide Web has been central to the development of the Information Age and is the primary tool billions of people use to interact on the Internet.
Marking the 30th birth anniversary of his revolutionary innovation, Berners talked about the privacy issue and lack of data protection. He also called out for users to protect and control their data as much as possible.
