World wide web turned 30 this 12th march 2019
The World Wide Web was born on this day in 1989. It was on March 12, 1989, that Tim Berners-Lee, working for Europe’s physics lab CERN, proposed a decentralised system of information management. That marked the birth of the World Wide Web – today abbreviated as simply ‘the web’– that billions around the world use to access the Internet. On 12th March, as people around the world celebrate the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web, they also remember it in its early years.
From Netscape to Ask Jeeves to Limewire, there was a lot on the web from the ’90s and early 2000s that we have forgotten. So take a trip down the memory lane with these tweets, as netizens reminisce about the early days of the World Wide Web:
Happy birthday to the World Wide Web! Remember the first time I ‘Asked Jeeves’. Mind blown.

Today, 30 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee introduced us to this crazy noise. Once you ground your teeth for 5 to 10 minutes of frustration (or went off to make coffee), you could Ask Jeeves to help you ???? Happy birthday to the World Wide Web ???? #WWW30https://t.co/jQqHFftVi3

The world is celebrating #WorldWideWeb Turing 30yrs today….. I still remember the painful #dialup connection to open an email, or playing chess in slow broadband. And now we see live streaming in 4G’s and Wi-Fi ……..

Its a real good day to celebrate because on this day When Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989, he changed the world forever. To mark this milestone, Sir Tim embarked on a 30-hour journey, starting at CERN in Switzerland where he worked when he invented the web and ended in Lagos, Nigeria.
Now thanks to this great man
we have knowledge at the tips of our hands
we just google for information
and we get it in completion
God bless Sir Tim Berners-Lee
because of him we have on the internet a lot to see
