The World Wide Web

History of the World Wide Web

The World Wide Web is a global information medium which all users can read and write by computers connected to the internet. The tern us often mistakenly used as a synonym for the internet itself, but the Web is a service that can always operate over the internet. The history of the internet dates back significantly further than that of the World Wide Web.

The hypertext portion of the Web in particular has an intricate intellectual history; that is notable influences and precusors that include Vannevar Bush's Memex, IBM's Generalised Markup Language and Ted Nelson's Project Xanadu.

The concept of a home-based global information system goes at least as far back as " A Logic Named Joe", a 1946 short story byMurray Leinster, in which computer terminals, called "logics," were in every home. Although the computer system in the story is centralized, the story captures some of the feeling of the ubiquitous information explosion driven by the Web.
