According to Wikipedia, The World Wide Web is an information space where documents and other web resources are identified by Uniform Resource Locators, which may be interlinked by hypertext, and are accessible via the Internet.
On March 12 1989, the World Wide Web was founded by Tim Berners-Lee. Today i.e March 12 2019, World Wide Web completed 30 years. It is commonly known as web or www. It is one of the greatest advancement and innovation of technology, that’s why Google is celebrating 30 years of WWW with a amazing doodle.
Tim Berners-Lee is regarded as the inventor of the World Wide Web and at the time he was 33 years old.
At CERN, Time Berners-Lee submitted a proposal to management for the system named “Mesh” that is ‘a large hypertext database with typed links’ to help his colleagues share information amongst multiple computers. The CERN is The European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland.
The title of the proposal was “Information Management: A Proposal” and the proposal was accepted by Berners-Lee’s boss with a message written by hand on the top of the proposal. The message was “Vague but exciting…”
The boss of Tim Berner-Lee allowed him some time to develop flowchart into a working model, writing all sorts of languages like HTML, HTTP and WorldWideWeb.app — the first Web browser and page editor. By 1991, the external Web servers were up and running.
According to the research organization, the first web server was Next Cube which Berners-Lee got in September 1990 and it was December of the same year when the web was established between few CERN computers.
Later that proposal ultimately became the World Wide Web. In today’s world, the documents are identified by Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) that also can be interlinked by hypertext and can be accessed using the Internet.
In today’s world, we can’t imagine life without the internet. There are approximately 2 billion websites online right now. People across the world use it for social media, e-mails, work, games, entertainment and many other things.
We at PaidFreeDroid wish a happy 30th Anniversary to the World Wide Web and also thank Google for reminding us of the anniversary through its cool animated Doodle.
