Millennials Share How The World Wide Web Changed Their Lives Forever, 30 Years Since Its Inception

The World Wide Web is a fascinating place to step into. There are a gazillion “addresses” you can visit and explore, and yet it holds no physical dimensions around it to vouch for its existence outside the pixelated and LED lit screens of the myriad gizmos that allow access to it.

WWW, as it is most popularly known, was brought into existence 30 years ago today, by British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee in 1989. Today there are close to 2 billion websites connected to the World Wide Web online, and life without the web seems almost impossible.

Given the raging wave of digitization that has engulfed our world far and wide, the web today has become almost as vital for our survival in the urbanscape that is constantly changing and evolving all the time, as is food or shelter.

So, on the WWW's 30th anniversary we decided to go around asking young millennials what are they most grateful to the internet for, and how the web may have changed their life beyond repair.

The answers, as you shall be witnessing, range from poignant to funny depending on what these young men and women think is the biggest boon of the internet's existence in 2019. 

With a majority of the young (and old) around the world heavily depending on the web and its services to get sh** done on a day to day basis (basically exist), the 30th anniversary of the WWW sure holds a lot of importance for all those who make use of it, and rely on its magic as if lives depended on it.

Here is what these 7 millennials have to say:

We have all been there and I suppose all of us are forever indebted to the web for the depth of information it has in store, and the umpteen times it has saved our a** when it comes to last minute “research” and assignment submission throughout school, college and even at work!

Online dating and socialisation have seen the biggest boom in the recent years, and with all the thrill that it brings into our life, there is no denying the dangers and misadventures one might come across in the virtual world. But the internet really does help us to get a heads up, and often saves us from nuisances and dangers.

How can we say anything else after this? This is so relevant to all regardless of whether we are millennials or not. The web has really changed our lives by exposing us to some of the greatest melodies and artists from around the world, which would have otherwise been lost to us.

Again, Facebook and Google have been complete game changers when it comes to the existence of the internet. What would we do without Google and all its “relevant” answers, and Facebook - that allows us to do a lot more than “stay connected”.

Touché. Not just Harshleen, but there must be a million other people whose lives changed forever thanks to the magic that is YouTube. So many of us have been able to get done so many things all because of this blessing.

Exchange of ideas and connecting with like-minded individuals from around the world, who share the same dreams, hopes and aspirations could only be made possible due to the existence of the web. The number of ideas, people and innovations that the internet furthers in beyond our imagination.

We have already been told about what a blessing Facebook is for millennials, but Netflix? We have no intention of adding anything to what Shwetabh has spoken of. Netflix is a true friend indeed.
