On this day 20 years ago Tim Berners-Lee invited the readers of the Usenet discussion group "alt.hypertext" to test the world wide web or www. Here you can read his text:
Thanks to him, we are publishing diablog and you are reading our stuff.

The teenage years are over. We all should grow up a little bit. The Web 2.0 was about user participation. Now we shall start a period of user emancipation.
As mentioned here, we should get our own personal webserver to
- gain independence from platforms
- take back control over our data and
- prevent censorship
Happy birthday www,
