The Internet History: the first website

Have you ever known where was the first website established? And who is the name behind the first time internet technology which we called ‘www (world wide web)’. Yesterday I thought it came from someone from united state or American but I realize now that I was wrong. The truth is Sir Timothy John “Tim” Berners-Lee, Jenewa, Swiss.

Tim was born in England, June 8, 1955, is the inventor of World Wide Web and also the chairman of World Wide Web consortium, and this organization developed all about the progression of www since that.

In 1980, when he was still working in CERN (Conseil Europeen pour la Recherche Nucleaire), Berners-Lee proposed one project was based hypertext concept. In the early of that project had something as purpose to facilitate all scientists from all division to share their innovation in one site of intern connection. With someone have the name Robert Cailliau, he created a prototype sytem called Enquire.

After leaving CERN for working at John Poole’s Image Computer System Ltd, he was back to 1984 as reseacher partner. He took same idea like Enquire for creating World Wide Web, a new technology of computer. He designed and made a first browser (World Wide Web and was amended within NeXTSTEP) and first web server was named httpd. The first website that Berners-Lee made (the first website in the world) was addressed at http http://info.cern.ch/ and had been onlined for the first time on August, 6 1991.

In 1994, Berners-Lee established World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Until now, Berners-Lee still humble and do not want to get popular status. That’s why there are many peoples don’t know how wonderful the masterwork of this guy.

One of his big contributions in developing World Wide Web is not to take a patent what he created and so that people free to use everytime. On July, 16 2004, he was given honour’s sake by Queen Elizabeth II in honour of his merit of science and life. []
