Some say today is the birthday of the World Wide Web. 15 years ago the CERN and Tim Berners-Lee released the code for the first web server into public domain and kicked off what we know today as the World Wide Web.

Tim Berners-Lee actually started the internet revolution in 1989 and in 1990 the first web site Info.cern.ch was online.Only because CERN released the web technology for free the explosive growth of the web was possible.
Sir Tim Berners-Lee says that the web is still in its infancy. I could not agree more. What bothers me a bit these days is that it seems development has slowed down. The Web 2.0 thing is already catching dust and in essence was nothing new anyway. I have a bit of hope that the Web on mobile devices will unleash another major evolution of the web giving us access anywhere, anytime to all information available.

Read an interview with Tim-Berners-Lee on BBC News and see the first web site here.
