Happy Birthday, World Wide Web!
Yesterday, August 6th, was the 15th Birthday of the World Wide Web! Wow! Hard to believe the web is only 15 years old… huh? (NOT the Internet, remember… we had e-mail and newsgroups LONG before we had pretty web sites!)
“15 years ago today, Tim Berners-Lee publicly released his WWW project onto the Internet. According to Wikipedia: ‘On August 6, 1991, he [TBL] posted a short summary of the World Wide Web project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup. This date also marked the debut of the Web as a publicly available service on the Internet.’ As the Wikipedia states, this was the point when hypertext was married to the Internet.”
