This was driven by the cold war between the West and the Soviet Union at the time where fear of traditional communications breakdown may occur and phones stop working prompting the need for a backup plan. Mainframe to mainframe No PCs were made yet direct communication or in other words, a networking. In the world of IT, there are many pioneers that helped contribute to the way we use technology today, from early ideas of what a computer could be way before one was actually made, to the inventor of Wi-Fi signals.
Invented in England in , Steam locomotive was one of the technological inventions that revolutionized the world. The first full scale locomotive was constructed by Richard Trevithick a British mechanical engineer in at the Penydarren Ironworks in Wales.
Before then in , Trevithick had constructed high-pressure working models of both stationary and locomotive. Over 3 billion people in the world use the Internet to access this network of webpages, using different browsers in order to visit their favorite websites Statista. However, with such a gargantuan number of unique, global users some of whom use the WWW more maliciously than others ,. The show stars Will Smith as a fictionalized version of himself, who is sent to move in with his wealthy aunt and uncle in their Bel Air mansion.
Boy Meets World is a show that shows the coming of age and everyday life-lessons of Cory. The show followed a group of friends and their principal. Primarily focusing on lighthearted. Radio, radio stations and shows exposed people to similar programming for the first time in history and were in the homes of over 12 million Americans by the end of the decade.
Simpler household life allowed women to explore a world outside of the kitchen, leading to the beginning of the increase of their role in society "The Roaring Twenties". More importantly however, the economic boom of the 20s is in large part a result of the invention of the automobile. Because of. Therefore, this instigates a re-evaluation of contemporary world politics and western democracy.
Bauman believes that we should identify common principles that could be used to develop an ethically informed set of policy guidelines to help decision makers better navigate between citizen's two basic rights: security and privacy. This viewpoint has connotations to that of Tim Berners Lee, creator of the World Wide Web, who believes we should construct a new Magna Carta on internet security. The father of the web predicted the clog that was soon to wind up plainly extremely recognizable to Internet clients, and he tested associates at MIT to design an on a very basic level new and better approach to convey Internet content.
What he might not have anticipated. These web browsers have become even more common as the years have gone by. People use them in their everyday life to accomplish tasks that they need to get done. The beginning of this profitable and popular invention all started back in Internet browsers have been around for the last 23 years.
You may find a later copy on the World Wide Web Consortium website. The site provided an explanation of what the World Wide Web was, and how people could use a browser and set up a web server, as well as how to get started with your own website. We can connect with each other instantly, all over the world. It comprised various companies that were willing to create standards and recommendations to improve the quality of the Web.
Berners-Lee made his idea available freely, with no patent and no royalties due. The World Wide Web Consortium decided that its standards should be based on royalty-free technology, so that they easily could be adopted by anyone. Berners-Lee participated in Curl Corp's attempt to develop and promote the Curl programming language. He told the newspaper that he easily could have designed web addresses without the slashes.
Commenting on the opening up of Ordnance Survey data in April , Berners-Lee said: "The changes signal a wider cultural change in government based on an assumption that information should be in the public domain unless there is a good reason not to—not the other way around. In November , Berners-Lee launched the World Wide Web Foundation WWWF in order to campaign to "advance the Web to empower humanity by launching transformative programs that build local capacity to leverage the Web as a medium for positive change".
Berners-Lee is one of the pioneer voices in favour of net neutrality ,  and has expressed the view that ISPs should supply "connectivity with no strings attached", and should neither control nor monitor the browsing activities of customers without their expressed consent.
He and 20 other Internet pioneers urged the FCC to cancel a vote on 14 December to uphold net neutrality. Berners-Lee joined the board of advisors of start-up State. Berners-Lee holds the founders chair in Computer Science at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where he heads the Decentralized Information Group and is leading Solid , a joint project with the Qatar Computing Research Institute that aims to radically change the way Web applications work today, resulting in true data ownership as well as improved privacy.
On 30 September , Berners-Lee announced his new open-source startup Inrupt to fuel a commercial ecosystem around the Solid project, which aims to give users more control over their personal data and lets them choose where the data goes, who's allowed to see certain elements and which apps are allowed to see that data. In November at the Internet Governance Forum in Berlin Berners-Lee and the WWWF launched Contract for the Web , a campaign initiative to persuade governments, companies and citizens to commit to nine principles to stop "misuse", with the warning that "if we don't act now — and act together — to prevent the web being misused by those who want to exploit, divide and undermine, we are at risk of squandering [its potential for good]".
He designed it. He loosed it on the world. And he more than anyone else has fought to keep it open, nonproprietary and free. Berners-Lee has received many awards and honours. On 13 June , he was appointed to the Order of Merit OM , an order restricted to 24 living members. He has been conferred honorary degrees from a number of universities around the world, including Manchester his parents worked on the Manchester Mark 1 in the s , Harvard and Yale.
In , Berners-Lee was among the British cultural icons selected by artist Sir Peter Blake to appear in a new version of his most famous artwork — the Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album cover — to celebrate the British cultural figures of his life that he most admires to mark his 80th birthday. In , he was awarded the inaugural Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering. Berners-Lee has said "I like to keep work and personal life separate. Berners-Lee married Nancy Carlson, an American computer programmer, in She was also working in Switzerland at the World Health Organization.

After graduating from the University of Oxford with a first-degree in physics, Tim set off to make his way in the world in At this point, he clearly knew his future job would have to involve computers, so he immediately began applying for various positions that utilized his programming skills.
Located in Poole, England, Tim spent roughly two years writing and editing programs for the former communications giant. He was then recruited by his old friend Kevin Rogers for a software job a few miles from his current workplace. After a while, Tim grew discontented with his limited work for other companies and decided to become an independent software consultant. At this point, computers were gaining momentum. Tim was exactly at the right time and right place for his profession.
In , while on a business trip to Switzerland, his friend Kevin Rogers contacted him again. This decision would be one of the most important decisions Tim would ever make. Tim made it through the interview with flying colors, and was immediately hired for a six-month post. He had an immensely hard time keeping track of every piece of information that had been filed away in his system.
His mind started wandering to find solutions for this problem. This problem kept nagging Tim during every task he took on, and he immediately set out to find a solution. In less than a month, Tim developed a program that was different from the one currently in use by CERN.
The new program connected pages randomly instead of using a tediously hierarchical structure. His inventive spirit would continue to demonstrate itself. After completing his assignments from his boss, he would hurry to perfect his coding skills. Tim hurried to write a program that allowed ENQUIRE to work on remote computers, but at that time it was hard for computers to communicate and transfer data between each other.
But Tim was way ahead of his time. He imagined a time when computers could instantly exchange information. After a few years of creating software at his new job in England, Tim suddenly began to show signs of nostalgia. He would often think back to his days at CERN in Switzerland and the opportunities that had grown from his time there.
After a few months of thinking, he knew exactly what he wanted to do. He applied for another job at CERN during early , and by he had been re-hired. He was immediately put to work with a team focusing on information-gathering software. It was not long until he came across a program that had been written to keep track of data and experiments in a tedious structure—the same problem Tim had been tasked to solve with his ENQUIRE software.
Seeing flaws with the "new and improved" software, he re-wrote the program from scratch. But with this new program, he suddenly discovered that different computers would need different commands to interpret this new version of ENQUIRE. At what seemed like a block in the center of the road, Tim immediately rushed to find a solution.
As the days dragged on, Tim began looking into the Internet. Although invented much earlier than the s, many people became aware of it in the late s. At once, Tim's mind began wandering to amazing heights. He began thinking "What would happen if I were to combine the Internet with various hypertexts? Connecting hypertexts using the software discovered with ENQUIRE was relatively simple, but Tim wondered if he could broadcast this connection on the Internet to solve the exchange problem.
After running a few trials, Tim began to overflow with excitement. His idea was unique in the aspect that any individual with access to a computer could create documents, store them on a computer, and allow any other computer to access them. The idea was revolutionary; he knew at once what he was on to. In the middle of , Tim submitted his first proposal to start developing his idea.
He made sure he was extremely elaborate and detailed in his proposal. He listed all the possible benefits that scientists at CERN would gain from his venture. But not everyone sensed the life-changing aspect of this proposal and it was debated upon as Tim patiently waited for a response. The female lead immediately caught his attention, and within a few weeks the two were a couple.
The two spent their holiday together at Nancy's home in Connecticut and Tim got to know his in-laws very well. But Tim was also able to make use of his time in America for professional pursuits and made sure to visit various labs and experiments in order to collect data for his software.
Overall, Tim ranked this trip as a success, and it was the beginning of new personal and professional chapters in his life. He knew he had to possess one. A NeXT computer was exactly what he needed to continue his work on his software. But Tim approached his boss very carefully. He knew that CERN would have a hard time approving such an expensive computer to someone who was involved in a project that tested the boundaries of their mission.
He got the help of his colleague who was very supportive of Tim and went on to talk to his boss. That's not the only "yes" Tim received to a difficult question. In the summer of , he and Nancy exchanged vows in Fairfield, Connecticut. The newlyweds then moved back to Switzerland where they fell in love with their modest house in the hills of the Swiss Alps.
It had an amazing view of rich pastures, Mount Blanc, and snow-capped mountains in the background. During the time he was out, his boss had discovered another individual with almost the same interests as Tim. He quickly set up a meeting with Robert Cailliau, and before long both men were deeply involved in the creation of Tim's new program, officially christened the World Wide Web. Robert was quick to point out the flaws in Tim's initial proposal and together they improved the new proposal tenfold before sending it to administrators again.
After several rounds of revamping the WWW, Tim and Robert decided to take a few weeks to put their own ideas together and then share their thoughts. Tim took this time to further explore his new and advanced NeXT computers and visit various hypertext conferences. At one particular conference in Versailles, France, Tim was intrigued by the software of a particular hypertext company.
He explained his project to the two representatives, but both individuals thought the proposal was ridiculous. It just didn't seem logical to have information on one computer to appear on another computer across the world. After this second consecutive rejection, Tim didn't let the disappointment get to him. He knew the World Wide Web was absolutely possible and if he were to perfect the program, it would change the world.
So during a period of transition of particle accelerators inside CERN, Tim's boss quietly turned his back while Tim turned on his computer and feverishly rewrote the code for the idea that would change his life. During this short interval, Tim worked like he had never done before.
He would often stay in his office at CERN all day, and come home a few minutes early to go to a restaurant. He worked tirelessly for countless days on end fixing loose ends of his program code here and there. They found Tim's proposal very intriguing, and in a few weeks, Tim had several encouraging followers. But during this time, Tim encountered numerous problems with his project.
The first problem he needed to solve was how the computer would find the page that the user was looking for. A URL would let computers know where a file was located in a computer server. A server is a storage system that contains the information contained on web pages. But not all computers could be servers, and most computers would be clients, which would mean that they would only be able to access the pages. But to view these different pages, a computer would require special software called a browser.
Tim later created this software enabling different computers to use the URL to find a Web page. After solving this dilemma, Tim soon ran into another major problem. How would a client be able to take information from a server that uses an entirely different program language? It was as if speaking English to a Japanese foreigner. But like his previous dilemma, Tim quickly found a solution. And almost instantly, this problem was solved. Now, any client and server could communicate, receive, and send files using HTML, with little or no drag time in between.
Tim was soon testing the World Wide Web every day and made sure to fix every bug he encountered. Once he started this project, others would chip in one by one, and it would quickly grow into something much larger than he had ever imagined.
After fixing many of the flaws that were first embedded in the World Wide Web, Tim installed the first web browser onto his NeXT computer and created a server right in his room. The WWW was contained in one computer system and would soon spread quickly to other systems. Soon after, on New Year's Day of , Tim's friends and family got the chance to see another of his creations enter the world. This time, a daughter. Alice Berners-Lee.
Tim drove to the hospital through a torrential snowstorm, and his face immediately lit up at the sight of his newborn child. He would later remark "As amazing as it would be to see the Web develop, it would never compare to seeing the development of a child. After a wonderful holiday break, Tim returned to work and was faced with a plethora of new challenges.
He had invented the WWW. Now, what was he going to do next? How was he going to promote this new creation? From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
