The World Wide Web turns 30 today. Thanks to the connectivity of this amazing creation, people can be anywhere, anytime without leaving their bedroom or getting out of their pajamas. What this means is if your environment has placed limitations on you through poverty of finances or mindset, then you can break free of those barriers.

For example, many people are now trading in their 9-5 commute by starting blogs or Internet-based stores from their home. Commerce through this method offers people flexibility and options in how they choose to make a living. In the same vein, people with disabling conditions, such as social anxiety or physical limitations, can get personal needs met by ordering supplies from their computer and having products delivered to their home.

Many families choose to homeschool their children for a variety of spiritual or social reasons. The technology of today allows students to interact with credentialed teachers through videos, audio and instant messaging. A nurturing homeschool environment provides youth the chance to efficiently learn without the distractions of other fidgety kids. They have generous amounts of downtime to play outside, take field trips, or learn about skills of daily living from their primary caregivers.  

Classes to improve your life

Two generations ago, students took standard classes of shop and home economics. Today’s standard class is learning basic HTML and other coding to design websites. Learning how to run a website is a basic skill to know in nearly all job descriptions. If you want to learn, CreativeLive offers modestly pricedclasses.

Are you a fan of a famous singer or other entertainer? You don’t have to miss a single new release or even a concert. Tony Robbins charges thousands of dollars for his public presentations. You can go to YouTube and watch him for free.

Meet the man who invented the web

And if you want to meet the man who invented it, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, you can. Thanks to his invention, you can reach out to him, too. Just do a Google search. They are grateful to him, too.

It’s said you’re a product of your environment. Thanks to the World Wide Web, though, you are not limited to your hometown’s culture in becoming who you are meant to be.

Happy Birthday World Wide Web! The World is in our hands!
