Happy WWW! Before 25 years at 6 August 1991, the world's first website appeared from a workshop in the Swiss Alps. The first page was created by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the father of the World Wide Web (WWW), and displayed information on the project World Wide Web.
The world's first website, ran from a NeXT computer at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), and still exists if anyone wants to visit it two decades after its creation.
World Wide Web
The WorldWideWeb (W3) is a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents.
Berners-Lee mentions on the page about the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (http) και περιγράφει τον τρόπο που ταξιδεύουν οι πληροφορίες και τα δεδομένα μεταξύ των συστημάτων ηλεκτρονικών υπολογιστών. Η HTML (HyperText Markup Language) αν η language which was used to create the first website.
The World Wide Web was written on a NeXT computer, the company founded by Steve Jobs when he was fired from Apple in 1985.
"We bought a cool machine, the NeXT computer," Berners-Lee said two years ago during the duration of an interview at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
“NeXT was a machine by Steve Jobs, created when he was kicked out of Apple…. it had a great environment for developers. "
The site came out online to the public on August 6, 1991. At the time, Berners-Lee had a note on the front of the NeXT computer that stated:
"This machine it is a server. DO NOT shut him down."
Let us mention that when Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web, his idea was simply to create a tool for scientists where they can easily find and share information.
The Web has since become the most powerful means of transmitting information to the world for knowledge, communications, commerce and other use you can imagine.
Last month, Berners-Lee, 61, now regretted his invention, saying that the Internet has now become "the world's largest surveillance network."
