Blog Redesigning In Progress

The World Wide Web turns 20 years

On March 13 of 1989 a software consultant named Tim Berners-Lee proposed a solution based on a distributed hypertext system (a global hypertext system) which eventually gave birth to the World Wide Web.

Tim Berners-Lee working at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research handed a document to his supervisor Mike Sendall entitled "Information Management : a Proposal". "Vague, but exciting" is how Mike described it, and he gave Tim the nod to take his proposal forward.

A mere two decades after its inception, the Web has revolutionized almost every aspect of our lives, from business to healthcare to relationships.

Happy Birthday to the World Wide Web - and sincere thanks and respect to Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

Heres a small documentary video on the topic.. enjoy!!
