World Wide Web Anniversary

The creation of what would become the World Wide Web was suggested by Tim Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau at CERN, in Switzerland. The name was suggested on August 1, 1990 and by October of that year they had designed a prototype Web browser. They also introduced HTML and URLs. By early 1993, there were 50 Web servers worldwide. Come check out both the history and current trends concerning this now household technology at the Todd Library during the month of August.
