World wide web turns 25 years old

Almost three billion people use what we now know as the “world wide web”, a quarter of a century after its inception.

Twenty-five years ago, a British computer scientist submitted a proposal for what he called a distributed information system.

Today almost three billion people use what we now know as the “world wide web”.

But another four billion people are still offline – many of them among the world’s poorest.
