When the world wide web was created, the internet became more advanced. Things you never knew possible became a reality. Due to its innovation, cable and broadband providers came up with procedures that could hinder accessibility because of discrimination.

World Wide Web creator, Tim Berners-Lee voiced out his support for an open internet in a Wednesday tweet.

He said that he invented the world wide web for everyone to use and not just for people who have the means to pay. He blurted out this statement following the Democratic lawmakers urge their fellow senators to thwart the FCC’s decision to end net neutrality rules.

Brief History of the World Wide Web

The World Wide Web or www is a structure of online content and configured in HTML and opened through HTTP. The terminology pertains to all the interlinked HTML that can be obtained over the Internet.

In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web. And in March of the same year, he outlined his concept of the web in the document named,  “Information Management: A Proposal.”

The following year, he wrote in October the three basic technologies of the world wide web.

♦  HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the formatting conversation for the web.

♦  Uniform Resource Identifier (URI or URL) is a type of special “address” utilized to distinguish each resource on the world wide web.

♦  Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) enables the recovery of linked resources throughout the web.

Some revolutionary ideas have been created by the early web community and have been adopted all over the tech industry. These include decentralization and non-discrimination. Both of these innovative ideas are enveloped in the Decenternet platform.

With Decenternet’s decentralized network, there is no need to ask permission from the central authority for posting on the web. It also indicates liberty from arbitrary suppression and surveillance.

The non-discrimination rule prevails in the Decenternet platform as well. The principle of equity that network practices is called net neutrality.
