GV Face: Happy 25th Birthday, Web!

It's the 25th birthday of the World Wide Web! In this edition of GV Face, Global Voices veterans talk about their early experiences with the web and all it has enabled us to do in our (nearly) ten years as an organization. Alan Emtage, web developer and inventor of Archie, the Internet's first search engine, speaks to us from Barbados on his experience as a Web pioneer. And GV community leader Renata Avila and Free Press Internet Campaign Director Josh Levy tell us about the Web We Want campaign, a new initiative that promotes global conversation about human rights and the Internet.
