2013-10-07 WWW IS ALMOST 25!

The 25th Anniversary of the invention of the World Wide Web is fast approaching. Sir Tim Berner's Lee made a proposal for information management system in March 1989, and implemented the first successful communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server via the Internet sometime around mid November.


His invention has continued to grow and has become the greatest source of information in human history. Its structure breaks down technical, geographic, and social barriers, and its existence continues to restructure every part of our culture.


We have all experienced how our global economy has been reshaped by the way in which we use our computers, tablets and phones to connect to each other and to business. There was the dotcom boom, followed by the dotcom bust, the arrival of Web 2:0 and the anticipation surrounding Web 3:0, the Social media adventure and the trending of Apps, E-commerce and the concerns surrounding privacy.


Sir Tim Berner's Lee as the inventor of the World Wide Web is an architect of worlds, a builder of networks, and the man best placed to discuss its future and how it will shape our businesses and our society. He is coming to the Baltic States for the first time to give a key note speech in Vilnius Innovation Forum 2013 “Innovation Drift”.
