The World Wide Web (known as the Web) is not synonymous with the Internet, but it is the most prominent part of the Internet, which can be defined as a technical-social system of interaction with people based on technological networks.
The notion of a technical-social system refers to a system that improves human cognition, communication, and cooperation;
Cognition is the prerequisite for communication and the prerequisite for cooperation. In other words, cooperation needs communication, and communication needs knowledge. The Web is the biggest information driver, and the idea of its construction was that of Tim Berners-Lee in 1989.
Much progress has been made on the Web and related technologies over the past two decades. Web 1.0 as a web of knowledge, web 2.0 as a communication network, web 3.0 as a web of cooperation, and web 4.0 as an integration network are introduced, such as four generations of Web since the advent of the Web.
In this article, we will talk about Web 1.0 as a web of knowledge. Web 1.0 is the first generation of Web that, according to Berners-Lee, could be considered a read-only web and also as a knowledge system. Web 1.0 started as an information site for businesses to disseminate their information to people.
In the beginning, the web offered limited user interactions or only content contributions and allowed only searching for information and reading it. In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee suggested the creation of a global hypertext space in which, in any accessible network, the information should be invoked by a single universal identification document (IDU).
The dream behind the Web was to create a common information space in which people communicate through the exchange of information.
Web 1.0 was primarily a web read-only. Web 1.0 was static and somewhat mono-directional so that businesses could offer catalogs or brochures to present their web-based output, and the people reading them get in touch with their businesses.
In fact, catalogs and brochures were just like advertisements in newspapers and magazines. The sites included static HTML pages that were frequently updated. The main purpose of the websites was to publish information for anyone interested at any time and to establish a permanent online presence. The sites were not interactive and really looked like brochures.
Users and visitors of the sites could only visit the sites without having any impact or contribution to them. With the advent of web 1.0, we can say that a small number of developers have created web pages for a large number of readers. As a result, readers will receive information by directly accessing the source. WWW. Or WEB 1.0 is a system of interconnected documents, “hypertext” accessed via the Internet. According to Berners-Lee, Web 1.0 is the first implementation of the Web and can be considered “read-only web”.
The earliest browser that allows us to search and read information. In fact, this was also the purpose of the owners: the website exists to make the information available to anyone and at any time. The visitor could not get involved in creating web content.
