Why is it said that Tim Berners-Lee’s invention changed the world?

          British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee’s invention of the World Wide Web has indeed been a landmark in world history. He designed a system which helped users across the world to view web pages through the Internet.

            It was while working at CERN, the European organization for Nuclear Research, that Lee first described the concept of a global system based on ‘hypertext’ that allowed users anywhere in the world to share information.

             In 1989, he put forth the idea of linking hypertext with the internet to create a system for sharing information globally. The system was named World Wide Web.

               On August 6th, 1991, the world’s first website- http:// info.cern.ch – was launched, explaining the concept of the World Wide Web.

               In a move to create a platform for the technical development of the Web, Lee founded the World Wide Web Consortium in 1994.
