THE WORLD WIDE WEB Madi Faulkner

The first World Wide Web proposal was created in 1989 by the British scientist Tim Berners-Lee. With the help of Robert Cailliau, a Belgian systems engineer, Tim Berners-Lee developed an outline of the concepts of the web. The purpose of creating the World Wide Web was to allow scientists to share and access information around the world.

  • The first website was info.cern.ch
  • The first web address was http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html
  • The website included information on the WWW and how to use it

The World Wide Web has evolved into a part of everyday life and is available for anyone to use. Information can be shared globally in a matter of seconds. The web has grown from being a tool for sharing information to now including a place for games and social media.
