Today is the #WorldWideWeb Day marking the birth of the #Web in #August 1990 at the Europe Laboratory for Particle Physics (#CERN) in Geneva, #Stitzerland. Tim Berners-Lee (now Sir Tymothy Berners-Lee) and Robert Calliau developed a prototype Web #browser and introduced Hypertext Markup Language, #HTTP.
The first ever #website was published on August, 6, 1991. It was a page explaining the World Wide Web project detailing on how to set up a #server, create websites and #webpages and search the web for information. Its url http://infor-cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/theProject.html is no longer available, unfortunately.
The good thing which is available is the World Wide Web itself a medium to read and write via computers connected to the #Internet.
We celebrate World Wide Web Day by getting #online, taking hasty #selfies to post on #social platforms, arguing with trolls on #blogs, taking notes from #podcasts, holding VoIP conferences to discuss the weather, backing up our data to servers across the world, syncing #photos for the whole family to see, booking our doctor’s #appointments online and generally expressing our opinions in discussions which are oftentimes much ado about nothing.
I think there is a good idea to start tomorrow a new #WWWWeek. Will you join?
Thumblr has 420mil++ users, man! It really is a matter of choice and like it or not, business plan. In my opinion, tumblr does it beautifully and sometimes, even with a bit of fun to it. Like the 90′s ads.
For many Americans, going online is an important way to connect with friends and family, shop, get news and search for information. Yet today, 15% of U.S. adults do not use the internet, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of survey data.
