'From a Humble Beginning 35 Years Ago, the Web Is Now Central to the Daily Lives of Billions' by Seth Dobbs

Seth Dobbs, president and CEO of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), writes the following on the organization’s blog:

[T]he World Wide Web was first proposed on [March 12] 35 years ago by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN. …

The expanded applicability of the Web is due in large part to the creation of the World Wide Web Consortium 30 years ago. Tim Berners-Lee created a single organization to coordinate web standards, aiming to foster a consistent and interoperable architecture accommodating the rapid pace of progress in web standards. …

Over the years, the Web and its underlying standards haveevolved to provide solutions to emerging problems around the world. … To enable such progress, the Web Consortium too has evolved, always taking a people-first approach: the Web must continue to serve humanity.
