Where Did The Web Come From?

Where Did The Web Come FromI can’t think of a single person today that does not have a computer, or at least access to a computer. But, do you know where the web came from? You will now! Read more. .. .

The World Wide Web was invented in 1989 at the European Particle Physics Lab in Geneva, Switzerland, an unlikely spot for a revolution in computing.

The inventor is a British researcher named Tim Berners-Lee, who is now the director of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, the organization that sets standards and loosely oversees the development of the Web.

This gentleman is terrifically smart and hard working and is the nicest guy you would ever want to meet.

He invented http (hypertext transport protocol), the way Web browsers communicate with Web servers; HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), the language in which Web pages are written; and URLs (Uniform Resource Locators), the codes used to identify Web pages and most other information on the net.

Early Web browsers had editors that let you create Web pages as easily as you could read them.

I would recommend that my readers visit http://www.w3.org to get more information about the development of the Web and the work of the World Wide Web Consortium.

This is very interesting information that I love reading.

If you can get a handle on the fundamental structure of the Web, you can use it better and think about all the other ways it can be used.

I’m here hopefully to help you along.
