The World Wide Web

From the thousands of inter- connected threads of the Internet, Tim Berners-Lee wove the World Wide Web and created a mass medium for the 21st century.

In 1989, he proposed a global hypertext project, to be known as the World Wide Web. He wrote the first World Wide Web server, 'httpd', and the first client, 'World Wide Web' a what-you-see-is-what-you-get hypertext browser/editor which ran in the NeXTStep environment.

This work was started in October 1990, and the program 'World Wide Web' first made available within CERN in December, and on the Internet at large in the summer of 1991.
