Speaking at a "Web 30" conference, Berners-Lee acknowledged that for those who are online, "the web is not the web we wanted in every respect".

Thirty years ago Tuesday, 33-year-old software engineer Tim Berners-Lee submitted a proposal to his boss that would set the technology world on fire and usher in the information age.

Today on Google's home page is a Doodle, a special Google logo, to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web.

"The web has become a public square, library, doctor's office, shop, school, design studio, an office, cinema, bank and so much more".

Though Berners-Lee recognized the good in his creation in giving the marginalized a voice, he said, "it has also created opportunity for scammers, given a voice to those who spread hatred, and made all kinds of crime easier to commit".

The web also fuels the unsafe spread of misinformation; search engine optimization tactics can push fake news stories to the top of Google search results, feeding internet users with falsities.

Google celebrates the web's birthday with a reminder of what things were like in its early years.

Numerous world's largest web-based companies such as Facebook, Twitter and Google, have come under scrutiny in recent years over data privacy issues and the rising spread of malicious and offensive content. He also named ad-based revenue models that commercially reward clickbait and the spread of fake news, and the unintended consequences that come from the outraged and polarized tone of online discussions. "It is more urgent than ever to ensure the other half is not left behind offline and that everyone contributes to a web that drives equality, opportunity and creativity", he wrote.

"If we give up on building a better web now, then the web will not have failed us - we will have failed the web", he said. "If we dream a little and work a lot, we can get the web we want", he added.
