David Tennant Attends World Wide Web Celebration At Science Museum London



David Tennant was one of the guests present for a celebration of 30 years of the World Wide Web held at the Science Museum in London last night. 



"Suppose all the information stored on computers everywhere were linked. Suppose I could program my computer to create a space in which everything could be linked to everything."
- Sir Tim Berners-Lee

The free special event, in partnership with the Web Foundation and hosted by Rachel Riley, celebrated Sir Tim Berners-Lee's invention of the World Wide Web in 1989 via a number of keynote speakers and a conversation with Sir Tim himself. 


Speakers at the event included Imogen Heap, Matt Brittin, Roya Mahboob, Taylor Wilson and Dr. Anne-Marie Imafidon MBE. London Mayor Sadiq Khan, presenter Samira Ahmed and astronaut Helen Sharman were also present. Sir Tim spoke about the need for caution on the internet, citing harmful and hurtful behaviours and the rise in fake news and manipulation, and stated that there was  long way to go before the internet was considered truly inclusive.
