Does your world revolve around emails? Did you Google for information today? Did you seek Google Maps help to find a place that you were visiting? Did you order for food today? Did you check Facebook to find out what your friends were up to? Or use WhatsApp to communicate? Or book tickets to a movie or to travel? Did you use World Wide Web in anyway?
I’m sure you did. Today, the World Wide Web is ubiquitous and everywhere. It has expanded our vision as well as shrunk the world into our fingertips. We cannot imagine a world without constant and instant access to all the information at out fingertips. Our daily lives are filled with instances when we use WWW to communicate, access information, gain knowledge and essentially to survive.
The World Wide Web (‘WWW’ or simply the ‘Web’) is a global information medium which users can read and write via computers connected to the Internet. The term is often mistakenly used as a synonym for the Internet itself, but the Web is a service that operates over the Internet, just as e-mail also does. The history of the Internet dates back significantly further than that of the World Wide Web.
Did you know that 1st August is celebrated as WORLD WIDE WEB Day?
The day is celebrated as an homage and honour given to the first time the Web was available to users – 6th August, 1991 – when Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau opened up the first web page explaining the World Wide Web project and giving information on how users could setup a web server, how to create their own websites and web pages, as well as how they could search the web for information.
From such simple and humble beginnings, today the World Wide Web has revolutionised the way we live, work, play, connect, learn and communicate. In fact, Instasafe owes its existence to the presence of World Wide Web. Without WWW, there would be no websites, no need for access, no need for security and hence no Instasafe.
So on 1st August this year, Instasafe Thanks Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau for laying the seed and foundation of the WORLD WIDE WEB!
All hail WWW! May it grow and prosper always!
