Happy 20th Birthday to the World Wide Web!

Posted Aug 8, 2011

Today is the 20th anniversary of the day Tim Berners-Lee created the first website, which means that the world wide web celebrates its 20th birthday today. The internet has been around for a few more decades than that, which may explain why coding seems more sophisticated than many of the websites it creates. After all, the web was only 12 when Myspace was born. This page is a mirror of the very first web page as created by Berners-Lee on August 6, 1991. So in people terms, the web is about to finish its undergraduate degree. What happens when the web goes to grad school? We’re about to find out. [Gizmodo]
