Created World Wide Web

Tim Berners- Lee created the World Wide Web in the 1980's, but it didn't become wide spread until the 1990's. The Internet was already in existence before the World Wide Web. If you wanted to share information, there were many steps to go through.

The World Wide Web is a decentralized system that anyone can use. Much easier way of sharing information between people across the country, or world. He envisioned the World Wide Web as something very serious and to be used strictly for business and education, and did not want images to be associated with it.

What is the World Wide Web?
Tim Berners- Lee's parents were both mathematicians and built the Mark I computer. As a child, he built his own toys and devices and was very interested in math and science.
How was he introduced to computers?
Attended Queen's College, Oxford University and graduated with a BA (honors) in physics in 1976. Berners- Lee worked for CREN (European Organization for Nuclear Research) in Geneva, Switzerland.

How did the public react?
CERN was hesitant towards Berners- Lee's ideas and did not support him. Berners- Lee turned towards the Internet community to support him.

Scientific community was very accepting of the World Wide Web and started using it right away. Government was also eager to use the World Wide Web.

Entrepreneurs approached Tim Berners- Lee in an effort to support him, but were turned down because Berners- Lee wanted to leave the World Wide Web as a cost free resource to the public.
Contributions?
Tim Berners- Lee has created, perhaps, one of the most used resources in the world.
The World Wide Web has made our lives easier and has helped shape the world.
