The World Wide Web as we know it has turned twenty years old and the man responsible for our total change of lifestyle is Mr. Time Berners. What started out as something to connect scientist has turned into the most incredible source of knowledge and corruption known to us.

Here is what Mr. Bernes-Lee had to say

“We should work toward a universal linked information system, in which generality and portability are more important than fancy graphics techniques and complex extra facilities. The aim would be to allow a place to be found for any information or reference which one felt was important, and a way of finding it afterwards. The result should be sufficiently attractive to use that it the information contained would grow past a critical threshold, so that the usefulness the scheme would in turn encourage its increased use.”

I wonder what the Web would look like twenty years from now
