The Web is 25 Years Old Today

Tim Berners LeeTim Berners-Lee once said “You affect the world by what you browse” and twenty-five years ago today on March 12, 1989, the British scientist created the foundation for what we called the World Wide Web. Today, we simply call it the Web and we have all been influenced by it whether we use it or not.

So how have we been influenced?

According to Jane Hart, Founder of the Centre for Learning and Performance Technologies, “many us are now learning very differently, but the most striking thing is that we are taking control of our own learning in ways not possible before.”

Ken Perlman stated in Forbes magazine he believes a new era is emerging: the era of the knowledgeable networker – people who learn, think and work very differently.

How has the Web changed your life? Maybe you have a stronger network through LinkedIn. Or maybe Twitter has allowed you to start your own social movement? And we can’t forget Facebook who has reconnected many of us to friends that we saw every day in high school but haven’t connected with in over 25 years.
