The World Wide Web is 33 years old today.
On March 12, 1989, a presentation of a unified system for organizing, storing and sharing information took place. It was developed by the English physicist Tim Berners-Lee. He called his project the World Wide Web (WWW).
The World Wide Web initially served as a means of communication between employees of the European Center for Nuclear Research (CERN), of which Bernes-Lee was an employee. As a result, the project turned out to be so successful that they became interested all over the world. Shortly thereafter, unified Internet communication standards, data transfer protocols, and a markup language were developed.
