The World Wide Web (WWW) is so ubiquitous that it seems strange to think that it has only been around for a few years. Indeed, use of the WWW became widespread in the mid 1990's, but its beginnings can actually be traced back to 1980 when Tim Berners-Lee, an Englishman who had recently graduated from Oxford, landed a temporary contract job as a software consultant at CERN ( the famous European Particle physics Laboratory in Geneva). He wrote a program, called Enquire, which he called a "memory substitute," for his personal use to help him remember connections between various people and projects at the lab (Wright, 64). This was a very helpful tool since CERN was (and still is) a large international organization involving a multitude of researchers located around the world. the link to his website.http://www.w3.org/People/Berners-Lee/

a paragraph of tim berners-lee. ;)
Sir Timothy Berners-Lee is a British computer scientist who invented
the World Wide Web. He received a knighthood from the British
Queen for his efforts (so he is called ‘Sir’). He is director of W3C,
which looks after the Web’s development. A leading British
newspaper ranked him as the world’s greatest living genius. Today’s
world would be very different without his discovery.
