A Story #ForTheWeb

Fifty years ago in 1969 the first electronic message was sent over the ARPANET. This led to the development of protocols for internetworking, in which multiple separate networks could be joined into a network of networks.

Forty years ago we were working on projects integrating the nascent ideas of networking and utilizing our new digital tools, the newfangled personal computer.

Thirty years ago Tim Berners-Lee proposed an information management system that has become known in the internet as the World Wide Web.

With each idea that comes along another will eventually spin-off or leverage its foundation to build further upon. This is the gift of collaboration… the never ending idea.

Our natural tendencies are to communicate and share. It’s the trajectory of our existence. Its synergy. 

“At pivotal moments, generations before us have stepped up to work together for a better future. With the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, diverse groups of people have been able to agree on essential principles. With the Law of the Sea and the Outer Space Treaty, we have preserved new frontiers for the common good. Now too, as the web reshapes our world, we have a responsibility to make sure it is recognised as a human right and built for the public good. This is why the Web Foundation is working with governments, companies and citizens to build a new Contract for the Web.”  — Tim Berners-Lee

You are invited to share how has the web changed your life… What do you use it for? What are your hopes for its future? And what would you like to see as the Contract for the Web?
