(OK, so this story is a day late!)


Yesterday was the 25th anniversary of the first proposal for the World Wide Web (WWW). On March 12th, 1989 the British scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee published details on a distributed hypertext system - originally intended to help manage data from coming from experiments at CERN.


Sir Berners-Lee was the author of the familar HyperText Transfer Protocol (HTTP) and the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) as well as being the creator of the first ever web browser, WorldWideWeb. The term "World Wide Web" was not actually used until 1990; before this it was known as "Mesh".


Although actual use of the WWW is declining, with some estimates suggesting that the WWW makes up only 30% of all internet traffic, it still remains a central technology in many people's lives. It is arguable that this one invention revolutionised the post-industrial era and truly brought us into the digital communication age.
