Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist, is the man credited as the creator of the web.
He was conceived in London in 1955 and grew up around technology, with his folks – likewise PC researchers – taking a shot at one of the soonest PC prototypes.
It was these early encounters that got Tim, presently 63, creating.
He previously stated: “I made some electronic gadgets to control the trains. Then I ended up getting more interested in electronics than trains.
“Later on, when I was in college, I made a computer out of an old television set.”
In the wake of graduating from Oxford University, he found a new job at CERN – the particle physics lab in Geneva that is home to the Large Hadron Collider.
It was working here that he first thought of the thought behind the web.
He clarified: “In those days, there was different information on different computers, but you had to log on to different computers to get at it. Also, sometimes you had to learn a different program on each computer.”
Despite the fact that the basic premise of the internet was at that point being created now, it was Tim who thought of using a technology called hypertext.
By 1990, Tim had built up the layout and the primary innovation that is the premise of the web – HTML (the language of the internet), URL (the addresses of web pages) and HTTP (something that takes into consideration connected sources to be recovered).
Luckily for the world, Tim ensured that the internet would be royalty-free, which means everybody on the planet could utilize it without paying.
The web was then further and all the more completely created when Tim moved from CERN to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1994 and financed the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
What’s more, as is commonly said, the rest is history. Cheerful birthday, Internet!
