Companies celebrate The Internet's 30th birthday by sharing their retro origins

Berners-Lee, the English software engineer who submitted his proposal for what would evolve into the World Wide Web 30 years ago Tuesday, said in a letter that his invention no longer serves its true objective to promote the free exchange of information around the globe. It was a proposal to better manage and monitor the flow of research at the labs, but within its pages were the underpinnings for what would become known as the World Wide Web.

The doodle is a far cry from the web we know now-it shows a beige computer and keyboard with a slow-downloading video, which hearkens back to the early days of the web.

The computer scientist submitted his first proposal for an "information management system" on 12 March 1989 - plans that his boss called "vague but exciting".

As Berners-Lee wrote, "it would be defeatist and unimaginative to assume that the web as we know it can't be changed for the better in the next 30".

Berners-Lee wrote that this contract is not a quick fix, but rather a way to improve people's relationship with the online world.

To Berners-Lee, the web is a "mirror of humanity" where "you will see good and bad".

Berners-Lee told a Washington Post event last week that he launched the Solid project in response to concerns about personal data being bought and sold without the consent of users. "It's our journey from digital adolescence to a more mature, responsible, and inclusive future".

Lastly, he adds, online discourse on social media had good intentions, but it has created an environment of outrage and polarization. Berners-Lee says there ought to be other incentives or ways to make money, though he doesn't go into detail on how that might take shape.

In the United States, for example, the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) repealed net neutrality protections in 2017, serving big cable companies at the expense of the public interest-a move Berners-Lee strongly opposed.

Though the terms are often used interchangeably, the internet and the World Wide Web are not the same.

Berners-Lee has since become a sort of father figure for the internet community, been knighted by Queen Elizabeth II and named as one of the 100 most important people of the 20th century by Time magazine.
