what he invented?

Tim berners-lee invented the world wide web.

In 1980, while an independent contractor at CERN June December 1980), Berners-Lee proposed a project based on the concept of hypertext, to facilitate sharing and updating information among researchers. With help from Robert Cailliau he built a prototype system named Enquire.

After leaving CERN in 1980 to work at John Poole's Image Computer Systems Ltd, he returned in 1984 as a fellow. By 1989, CERN was the largest Internet node in Europe, and Berners-Lee saw an opportunity to marry hypertext and Internet. In his words, "I just had to take the hypertext idea and connect it to the TCP and DNS ideas and � ta-da! � the World Wide Web" [1]. He used similar ideas to those underlying the Enquire system to create the World Wide Web, for which he designed and built the first browser (called WorldWideWeb and developed on NeXTSTEP) and the first Web server simply called httpd (which was short for HyperText Transfer Protocol daemon).

Tim wanted people to combine their information and knowledge without thinking about the problem of geographic distance.
