WORLD WIDE WEB March 13, 2009

Posted by thenaturalist in Dates.

The World Wide Web was invented March 13, 1989 by a particle physicist named Tim Berners-Lee, who was working at a physics lab in Switzerland at the time. The World Wide Web began with Berners-Lee’s idea of using the Internet to allow physicists to browse from page to page, share images and click on links to access other sites. Once it was introduced, it expanded rapidly, taking advantage of the Internet, which had already been running more than 15 years. (“Web has its 20th birthday,” AP, 3/13/09)
