August 6th 1991 saw the birth of the World Wide Web. It was on this day 30 years ago that British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee published the world’s first ever website. The landing page titled “World Wide Web”, featured links to information on himself, his team of scientists and the history of the project. It was these links which represented the Web’s real breakthrough. Berners-Lee never tried to cash in on his invention and rejected propositions to patent it, he preferred for the Web to be open and free to all so it could expand and evolve as rapidly as possible.
Thank you Sir Tim Berners-Lee, neither the world nor LN-CC would be what is has become today without the World Wide Web. Let’s all take a moment to appreciate how far we’ve come since the days of needing access to a telephone line to connect to the internet and enjoy a curated playlist of the best sounds from 1991 – the year of the World Wide Web.
