In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee (who was working in a computing services section of CERN), Tim had the idea of enabling researchers from remote sites in the world to organize and put together information. But far from simply making available a large number of research documents as files that could be downloaded to individual computers; he suggested that you could actually link the text in the files themselves. ...read more.
