Tim Berners Lee : The inventor of the World Wide Web on enabling the future of the NEW WEB

Wifi

A great talk by the inventor of the worldwide web Tim Berners-Lee from this year’s TED conference, well worth spending 18 minutes of your life with.

Not a lot of us know that Tim Berners-Lee founded the world wide web. He started to experiment with internet related protocols in 1989 while at work. Today, if you have a web blog or a web related business you need to thank Tim for the amazing innovation called the web. 

The speech here is worth reflecting on how new the web is: in January 1992 there were only 50 web servers in the world after the web’s invention in 1990. As Berners-Lee says in the video above, the past was (and remains in many cases) links from single page to single page: the future is linked data.

For linked data to serve you that data needs to be free, so the old techniques of document sharing need to change to a culture of shared data: a commons of content that can be referenced in multiple ways.

Instead of hording data and documents as we do now, Berners-Lee calls for ‘raw data now’ to enable a future of sharing and therefore increased collaboration.

The talk is well worth spending 18 minutes for your life for the founder who created the world wide web.

    Although he may be credited with the “world wide web” He didn’t create the idea of the network. ARPANET in the late 1960’s created a file system sharing protocol between top end universities. Legitimately they were the inventors of the internet. The connection of computers to a single system. Sounds like Tim had a connection with politics at the time to be defined as the “inventor”.

    It’s really amazing to think that the web hasn’t even been around for 20 years yet! I still sit at my computer and think.. wow.. I can’t believe I’m sending a message to someone on the other side of the world. Thanks Tim, you’ve changed the world!

    Linked Data? It sounds great, but what matters I think will be the privacy of the data that are to be shared. There will be a lot of things to be considered here, but with the inventor in lead, everything will be taken care of.
