Web has lived long. It has a long journey ahead as well. Web was established with principles and they will hold good for eternity. In fact they will have to for the success of web as aptly described by Tim Berners-Lee. Here is a quick recap of principles described by him.
Universality is the general expectation for any kind of system. For web, it means a link that can give access to any kind of data that is present. It also indicates that no data should be hidden within its own network.
Open Standards –
They drive innovation. Web should allow any site to link to any other site. Open and royalty free standards are the encouragement and a ‘no’ to closed worlds.
Web and Internet –
They both are different. One has to know that web is an application running on the internet.
Human Rights –
User gets the bandwidth for what he has paid for.
No Snooping –
It is not meant to share the illegal data and one has to follow the web electronic laws.
