One of the most important inventions in history.
12 March 1989, 30 years ago, was formally established distributed system is the World Wide Web or “world wide web”, which is recognized as one of the greatest achievements of mankind. The world wide web has created a software consultant Tim Berners-Lee, originally developing it as the internal network of the organization for European Council for nuclear research.
The world wide web was invented in 1989 thanks to the efforts of Tim Berners-Lee. The aim of the inventor was to create a tool that would allow scientists to look for the necessary documents and information in a simple way. To this end, he created a large hypertext project, which was published hypertext documents, connected to each other by hyperlinks.
Berners-Lee approached the project with maximum enthusiasm. For the implementation of the plans inventor has created HTTP, IDs, URLS and HTML. All of these technologies are not only formed the basis of a global “world wide web”, but also used in modern Internet today.
In the framework of its project for scientists Tim Berners-Lee created the first web server, the first browser, WorldWideWeb and the first web site http://info.cern.ch. Archival copy of the first in the history of the site can be viewed at this link.
For several years, Tim Berners-Lee was developing the world wide web with just a few assistants. But in 1994 he founded world wide web consortium (W3C), which continued to develop the technological standard of the Internet and the world wide web. Berners-Li heads the consortium, and in our days.
On the day of the birth of the world wide web Berners-Lee made an official statement, urging the world not to destroy the Internet.
