The Birth Of The Web

WWW proposal CERN

The World Wide Web was born 25 years ago, in March 1989. Above is the proposal for the web as laid out by its creator, Tim Berners-Lee, a scientist working at CERN. The very first website in the world was dedicated to the World Wide Web itself, and it’s a thing of beauty!

I believe the entire world owes Tim Berners-Lee a debt of gratitude for creating and making the web free to use. I have vague memories of before the internet, where I had to look in books and encyclopaedias to complete my school homework, and rely on copies of books being available in the library. Nowadays, literally everything is just a click away. The internet has revolutionised the way we live, work, and socialise. I, for one, am supremely happy we have it!

So here’s to the World Wide Web. May it continue onwards!
