30th Anniversary of the World Wide Web

'Suppose all the information stored on computers everywhere were linked. Suppose I could program my computer to create a space in which everything could be linked to everything.

Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web

In 1989 the world’s largest physics laboratory, CERN, was a hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. Tim Berners-Lee envisioned a unifying structure for linking information across different computers, and wrote a proposal in March 1989 called "Information Management: A Proposal". By 1991 this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web.

Web@30 event at CERN

To celebrate 30 years since Tim Berners-Lee's proposal and to kick-start a series of celebrations worldwide, CERN will host a 30th Anniversary event in the morning of 12 March 2019 in partnership with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and with the World Wide Web Foundation.

This Web@30 anniversary event will be webcast and you can join us to watch live!
