As the Web Turns 25, Where Is It Going Next?
The World Wide Web turns 25 this week. In this Radio Rewind, we revisit a 1999 conversation with Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the web’s inventor. And we talk with Lee Rainie, director of the Internet Project at the Pew Research Center, about the web of the future, which he says many experts liken to electricity—invisible and omnipresent, operating in the background of our daily lives.
Tim Berners-Lee is the inventor of the World Wide Web and director of the World Wide Web Consortium in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Lee Rainie is director of internet, science, and technology research at the Pew Research Center in Washington, D.C.
