Happy 25th Birthday, Web!

On March 12, 1989, Tim Berners Lee invented the Web, an essential innovation in the lives of billions of people worldwide. On the occasion of 25 years of the Web, Internet Without Borders hopes that this space remains a medium of freedom and sharing.

A quarter century ago, British scientist Tim Berners Lee published an article introducing the concept of the Web: a revolutionary way to share information. Some 900 million websites later, the Web has become an indispensable tool for billions of citizens and Internet users worldwide.

On the occasion of this 25th anniversary, the Web Foundation, an organization founded by Tim Berners Lee which funds some of Internet Without Borders' programs, published the website www.webat25.org where you can share a message to celebrate this landmark date in the history of mankind.

« Internet Without Borders and the people who share the values of our organization want the Web to remain a space of free movement of ideas, knowledge, and friendship among peoples. The Web is a space of empowerment for citizens around the world, and a chance for humanity. »,

said Archippe Yepmou, President of Internet Without Borders. This moment of celebration must not make us forget the dangers that threaten the Web and against which citizensmust remain mobilized: electronic surveillance, censorship, risk of fragmentation of cyberspace, among other risks.

Happy Birthday Web! #web25
