World Wide Web Day is celebrated on August 1st every year. It is a global celebration dedicated to web browsing, the online activities that bring the world at our fingertips and a wealth of knowledge at our feet.
“If there is no fundamental science then there is no basis for applied science. We have to strike a balance. 23 years ago the World Wide Web was born here. It has changed the world dramatically. – Professor Rolf-Dieter Heuer”
History of World Wide Web Day
The World Wide Web (commonly called as ‘WWW’ or simply the ‘Web’) is a global info medium which users can write and read via computers connected to the Internet. Tim Berners-Lee developed the World Wide Web in the year 1989 at the CERN centre located in Geneva, as a way for him to interact with co-workers via hyperlinks. A quarter of a century later, WWW has become the principal means of transaction, interaction and communication among the humans, opening the door of possibility for people in ways that would have been unthinkable to the previous generations.

How to Celebrate World Wide Web Day
We can celebrate (WWW) World Wide Web Day by getting online, taking quick selfies to post on the social platforms (like Facebook, Snapchat, Twitter, Instagram, etc.,). We can also argue with trolls on the blogs, taking notes from the podcasts, holding VoIP meetings to discuss the weather, backing up our data to servers located across the world. People can also sync photos for the whole family members to see, book the doctor’s appointments online and express our views and ideas in discussions which are often about nothing.
