TBL (1)

Tim Berners-Lee was the head behind the creation of the World Wide Web where he used HTTP to be able to share hypertext files world-wide through the use of web domains. The early versions of the Internet were used as a way to share files from different locations, and early on this was an efficient way to do so. As my users began to join the WWW, there became an increased demand for personalized browsing. One large contribution the creating of web 2.0 had towards society was the introduction of Social Media. This allowed users to be connected and share images directly with their friends and family. Berners-Lee recognized that there was a need for a more personalized browsing experience, which is what led him and his colleagues to the creation of Web 3.0 and the semantic web with the use of advanced HTML elements.

This allowed for the gathering of user information so the web pages individuals were exposed to correlated with their interests and search history. The creation of the internet stemmed from Berners-Lee’s idea of sharing hypertext files while he was working on the prototype ENQUIRE. Berners-Lee stated that all the technology he used to create the internet was already available, all he had to do was put it together.
