Happy 25th Birthday to the Web!

Dillon Mann · March 11, 2014

Today, March 12 2014, is the Web’s 25th birthday. To celebrate, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the World Wide Web Foundation and the World Wide Web Consortium have teamed up to launch webat25.org, a hub site which allows users around the globe to send birthday wishes to the Web, and learn about how they can, and should, play a key role in shaping its future. Head on over to webat25.org or send greetings using #web25 on any social media platform.

The Web Foundation is also announcing that today marks the start of a year of action for our Web We Want campaign, designed to engage millions around the world to tell us about their wishes for the Web and then work to build its future together. We’ll amplify, support and strengthen local groups, especially in the developing world, allowing everyone, everywhere to define and claim the rights they want to have online both nationally and globally.
