Google Doodle goes all tech to celebrate 30th anniversary

The inventor of WWW, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, was 33 when he submitted his proposal.
Speaking at a "Web@30" conference at CERN, Berners-Lee acknowledged that a sense among many who are on the Web has become: "Whoops!" In practice, the access to a browser on a home computer made the internet easily accessible to consumers for the first time.
Ninety per cent of adults in the United Kingdom used the internet past year, and there are few industries in the world that have not been touched in some way. It forever changed the way people get information, share ideas, buy goods and do work.
The first ever words that Berners-Lee's boss uttered after he proposed his plan about information management were 'vague but exciting.' Both had never realized that the complexity of Lee's proposal will signal the phenomenal birth of the World Wide Web that is now being used by billions of people worldwide. It also has given groups traditionally not heard a new voice in society. He urged people to fight to minimize the negative consequences of the Web, such as harassment, polarizing discourse, and the spread of misinformation.
Crucially, Berners-Lee called for the upcoming Contract for the Web to be a kind of guiding star that must also be flexible enough to adapt to the pace of technology. "Where is the balance between freedom of speech and hate speech?" he said.
Tim Berners-Lee, the brain behind the World Wide Web, raised doubts on his creation's ability to be a force for good in a letter published for his foundation on Monday.
He assured that the web foundation was working with governments, companies and citizens to make the web safer.
Aged 63, he is now working on a new platform called Solid, which he hopes will break the stranglehold of the web giants and give individuals control over their data - work which gives him hope for the future.
Under the contract's sweeping, broad ambition, governments are supposed to make sure everyone can connect to the internet, to keep it available and to respect privacy.
Thirty years later, however, experts agree that the Web is in urgent need of improvements.
Berners-Lee called on citizens to hold companies and governments accountable for the commitments they make, and only elect politicians who will defend a free and open web. Making big changes will not be easy, but will be very well worth it in the end, he added.
"The web", Berners-Lee stated, "is not the web we wanted in every respect".
Around half of the world's population is now online, with a Google post accompanying today's Doodle reading: "The web would soon revolutionise life as we know it, ushering in the information age". His story was based on reports from the Associated Press, Reuters, Agence France-Presse and online sources. Write to us in the Comments section, and visit our Facebook page.
