The word web has many connotations and interpretations. For some, the web is a medium of free expression and for others, it is something that merits censorship. But Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, in 1998 said: “the Web is an abstract (imaginary) space of information”.

If Sir Tim had lacked the imagination to conjure something as impressive as the World Wide Web, we would still be struggling to make space for those thick volumes of Encyclopedia Britannica hardbacks on our bookshelves. The web wasn’t conceived by a dreamer doodling with ink and paper. It was created by a physicist who wanted his work to be open for others to view. He simply provided a platform for others to build, collaborate and innovate.

    Hey Phillip,

    That was very interesting, I read the article over on the other site.

    I guess I never paid much attention to when or why the web was created so thanks for sharing this bit of news with us. I learned something new today, love that.

    Enjoy your new week, it will be here before you know it.

    • Hi Adrienne,
      Thank you so much for you kind visit and the feedback.
      Yes, many do not give much attention to find out the history.
      Though we enjoy this wonderful facility since many years we never cared to find out the beginning of it. Of course we all have some vague idea about it, the real history is amazing! Indeed, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web did a great job for all of us :-) :-) :-)
      Yes, Here in this part of the world its already here :-) Enjoy the week.
      Good Wishes.

  2. Hi Philip,

    This is interesting to know. Thanks for sharing. We take the web for granted and I guess not many people are interested in how it started. Or who started it. So, it was nice that you gave us this information.

    Have a blessed weekend. :-)

  4. Hi Philip,

    It’s always great to learn something new. I never knew about Sir Tim Berners-Lee and that he was the inventor of the WWW. I always remember the joke that vice President Al Gore invented it. LOL!

    Thanks for the great info and hope you’re having a great week.
