Remembering dial-up internet as the World Wide Web turns 30


And so it began…In 1989, Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web, changing the world forever. Today we’re joining in with #web30, sharing the best of British internet moments to celebrate the 30th anniversary.

Growing up, Sir Tim was interested in trains and had a model railway in his bedroom. He recalls:

“I made some electronic gadgets to control the trains. Then I ended up getting more interested in electronics than trains. Later on, when I was in college I made a computer out of an old television set.”

After graduating from Oxford University, Berners-Lee became a software engineer at CERN, the large particle physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. He is currently a professor of computer science at the University of Oxford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)

On 30 September 2018, Berners-Lee announced a new application made by open-source startup Inrupt called Solid, which aims to give users more control over their personal data and lets users choose where the data goes, who’s allowed to see certain elements and which apps are allowed to see that data.
