8 June : Revolution written in 1989

Just sit and think how your life would be without internet. As shocking it seems, as it would be. Such was the life before today in 1990.

Today in 1989 English scientist Tim Berners Lee launched the World Wide Web and wrote the first web browser the next year.
In 1991, Tim published a short summary of WWW and internet was made accessible to the public.
In 1993, CERN announced that internet would be free to everyone and there would be no fee for its use.
In 1994, many websites erupted and the internet service got popular.

Truly said, Sir Tim Berners Lee, the Father of Internet. A visionary with a revolutionary idea and the courage to bring it to the world and make every one its fan.
Since then till now, Internet has emerged as an addiction. 
Researchers are debating on adding Internet addiction to the list of mental disorders. China has treatment camps for Internet addicts. But we adore this addiction to its extreme and enjoy being an Internet addict.

Lee believed :
The original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information. 

इंटरनेट आज हमारी ऐसी ज़रूरत बन गया है जैसे हवा और पानी। सोशल मीडिया हो या ऑनलाइन कोर्स… हर तरह से इंटरनेट ने हमारे जीवन पर राज कर लिया है। और हमें उसके अधीन होकर जीना अच्छा भी लग रहा है… मज़ा भी आ रहा है। 1989 में टिम बर्नर्स ली ने www यानी वर्ल्ड वाइड वेब लॉन्च किया था। और महज़ 5 सालों में इंटरनेट ने दुनिया में तहलका मचा दिया।
