Sir Tim Berners-Lee

Tim Berners-Lee is an English computer scientist who is known as the inventor of the World Wide Web.

The idea originated in 1984 when he was working at CERN, the European Particle Physics Laboratory in Geneva, Switzerland. The Scientists wanted a way to share information so he then formed a system which enabled people to share information around the world.

He wrote the first Web page editor/browser (“WorldWideWeb”) and the first Web server (“‪httpd“). In 1993 the world wide web was available to anyone.

The web has developed over time and changed the world; it is the worlds most powerful form of communication.
