The World Wide Web

The WWW was made by Tim Bernes-Lee in 1980's. He worked at CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research) He suffered from information overload and he wanted a way to organising documents and make them more accessible, than just a lode of of papers. He invented the internet which could link hypertext documents to computers by a link.
