The World Wide Web and who weaves it

We drive in the usual WWW in the address bar ... and often do not realize the meaning of these letters. The World Wide Web is a global repository of information that exists on the technical basis of the Internet. As you can see, the term "www" is not the same as the Internet. The Internet is a huge number of computers connected by a network together.

In simple terms, information on the Internet is organized in the form of Web pages (separate hypertext documents). In turn, pages related by content are grouped into a site. And then there is the web server, a program that runs on a computer and uses the HTTP protocol to exchange data. The WWW is made up of hundreds of millions of web servers containing billions of websites and hundreds of billions of web pages.


Invented the World Wide Web, as we already know, Timothy John Burners-Lee. It was with him that the development of websites began, remember this guy.

One of the world's first hereditary IT specialists, he was born into a family of British mathematicians and was removed from Oxford. After that, he stubbornly undertook (and brought the matter to the end!) to assemble his own computer.

The reasons for the suspension are still being debated: either the future sir and knight-commander of the British Order of Merit launched a hacker attack on the college's internal network, or used a computer in the nuclear physics laboratory for a computer game.

One way or another, the talented specialist has not disappeared anywhere, and we will continue to follow him from March 1989. So, Tim Berners-Lee works at the European Laboratory of Particle Physics, where a team of physicists works. Team members are located in different countries, and it is not easy for them to exchange research results and ideas between organizations. Tim proposes to use a hypertext solution system and works on the project further.

And so, on August 7, 1991, British scientist Tim Berners-Lee publishes the first web pages that were the result of his work on the World Wide Web project. Since March 1989, Tim has managed to create everything necessary for the Internet to become a reality, including the first browser and server.


The WWW has an amazing history. Originating in the late 1980s as a tool for exchanging data between physicists, the WWW has gone through several stages of its development. Now it links together billions of people around the world.
