November 4 was the fifteenth birthday of the World Wide Web. Which was in fact invented by Tim Berners-Lee. So in order to mark the occasion, I offer you the story behind this great man, and a brief history timeline of the Internet. From where it all began in 1945 the veritable stoneage of computing. Through the 90's, which even today whilst looking back, seems quite ancient in comparision to how far we have come. So follow me if you will, and take an informative and captivating walk through history. ~ Scarlett
In 1989,Tim Berners-Lee proposed a global hypertext project, to be known as the World Wide Web. Based on the earlier "Enquire" work, it was designed to allow people to work together by combining their knowledge in a web of hypertext documents. He wrote the first World Wide Web server, "httpd", and the first client, "WorldWideWeb" a what-you-see-is-what-you-get hypertext browser/editor which ran in the NeXTStep environment. This work was started in October 1990, and the program "WorldWideWeb" first made available within CERN in December, and on the Internet at large in the summer of 1991.
