The Internet is turning 30 and there is a big celebration bash planned! The World Wide Web Foundation will host a speaker lineup, starting with Tim-Berners-Lee, the computer scientist responsible for publishing the web proposal that was the foundation of web browsing as we know it today. Lee will also participate in a forum at London’s Science Museum about how the Internet has altered our lives and what can be done to protect its future. Rosemary Leith, co-founder of The Web Foundation will kick-off an event that focuses on females in technology and the related social challenges.
