On the day the World Wide Web turns 25, Tim Berners-Lee, the man who invented the Web, will answer your questions about the past and future of the Internet with an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit.

"I invented the WWW 25 years ago", said Internet pioneer Berners-Lee when announcing the AMA, "and I am concerned and excited about its future."

The AMA takes place Wednesday, March 12, at 7 p.m. GMT, or noon PT.

CNET chatted with Berners-Lee this week, where he suggested "the anniversary gives us a chance to look back but it also serves as a way to look forward... What sort of Web do you want over the next 25 years? Are you satisfied with what you've got -- or with what you might get if you're not careful?"
