Happy Birthday WWW 1991

Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday 20th birthday dear  WWW

Celebrating the thought process of Tim Berners-Lee.   Is it already 20 years since Tim Berners-Lee authored "Information Management: A proposal" and set the technology world on fire? 

In 1989, PCs were still a novelty for many businessmen, and at that point, how many people outside of universities or scientific circles had ever heard of something called the Internet?

What Tim gave birth to was the World Wide Web, and thus, eventually, Facebook, eBay, Google, iTunes, YouTube,, blogs....

How different things are today. Now Facebook has inspired an Oscar nominated film, creating 3 or more billionaires.  Google is used millions of times a day!

Back in 1989, Berners-Lee was a software consultant working at the European Organisation for Nuclear Research situated just outside of Geneva, Switzerland.

On March 13 of that year (1989), he submitted a plan to management on how to better monitor the flow of research at the labs. People were coming and going at such a clip that an increasingly frustrated Berners-Lee complained that CERN was losing track of valuable project information because of the rapid turnover of personnel. It did not help matters that the place was chock-a-block with incompatible computers people brought with them to the office.
