W3C Celebrates Its 25th Anniversary

Coralie Mercier writes for the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) blog that Oct. 1 was W3C’s 25th anniversary. Since 1994, “we at the Web Consortium have led the Web to its full potential by convening industry, researchers, and the global community of Web developers to create freely available and open standards that ensure that the Web remains open, accessible, and interoperable for everyone around the globe. Software developers implement these standards in browsers, servers, blogs, graphic editors, search engines, and all the other software that powers the Web experience.”

Mercier shares that W3C has “earned recognition for our global impact: the Boston Globe ranked W3C the most important achievement associated with MIT in its first 150 years. Our organization has won two Emmy Awards: in 2016 for our work to make online videos more accessible with captions and subtitles, and again in 2019 for standardization of a Full TV Experience on the Web. The Web Consortium’s impact even extends beyond this planet: NASA has used W3C standards in both the Spirit and Opportunity Mars rovers.”

W3C will continue celebrating with history, pictures, web stories, tweets, and videos. Use the hashtag #webstories to share your own web stories.

For more information and a list of W3C’s contributions to the web, read the blog post.
