The Day It Was Born

Today is the 20th anniversary of the humble beginnings of a great idea. On 13th March 1989, Tim Berners-Lee submitted a proposal on information management to the European Organization for Nuclear Research (popularly known as CERN, where the LHC experiment started last year) where he worked. While making this proposal, he might have never thought his ideas would have such a far reaching consequence in the history. Probably, WWW is the most influential invention of recent times, and it’s growing in every dimensions and the infinite possibilities are there to unearth.

 

Though the proposal submitted in 1989, www took off its wings in 1990 only. Read a nice article on the 20th annversary of the web in Scientific American.
