It might be not particularly important that there was a “day” assigned to opening of the world wide web, the 23rd of August, today. But what I suppose is interesting, is that WWW turns 25 (even if formally, it is worthy of being noticed).
Which makes it older than my students or my skillful conversationists on tumblr.
They do not remember, nor did they witness, the world without world network, of which we are magnificent spiders.
Governments, terroristic groups, artists, television, libraries — everything was to use the WWW.
25 is a young age even by humans’ measuring of time. We know little about how it affects us exactly but we know it does, and in a profound way.
We don’t know repercussions, we don’t know the future. But we can guess and we can dream.
It is exciting to see the WWW developing throughout the years. The invention of the WWW is but comparable with the world-wide implementation of book printing. The next such transformative invention is probably teleportation.
Sometimes we forget about the newness of this era. But then it reminds us.
