Birth of the World Wide Web

Twenty-five years ago, in March, 1989, Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist at a European research institute in Switzerland called CERN, submitted a proposal called “Information Management: A Proposal”. That was the birth of the World Wide Web. The web was originally created as a way for physicists in institutes around the globe to share information. The image shown was on Berners-Lee’s proposal. The world’s first web address was http://info.cern.ch. Today, there are over 600 million websites in the world. Here is a video about how the Internet works.
