Happy Birthday World Wide Web: World Wide Web Turns 30

The World Wide Web (WWW), commonly known as the Web is 30 years today! (12 March 2019)



On 12 March 1989, Tim Berners-Lee wrote his proposal for a new IMS (information management system) connecting documents held across multiple computers at CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research), where he worked.

According some reports, his initial proposal was rejected. The rejection did not deter Tim Berners-Lee from making his dream come to pass.


In 1990, Tim Berners-Lee created 3 crucial technologies that helped him to create the first website. Namely:

Uniform Resource Identifier (URI)Web address

Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)  ‘actions Web servers and browsers should take in response to various commands.’

HyperText Markup Language (HTML) which is the standard markup language for creating web pages and web applications.


WWW was made  public in 1993 and the interest was overwhelming. It was an instant hit! governments bodies, companies and  people were creating their own websites… The rest they say is history!
