Thirty years ago today, thirty three year old Tim Berners-Lee presented an idea for an information management system to assist co-workers at CERN (The European Organisation for Nuclear Research).

Back then, it is unlikely this a young software engineer knew the influence his “large hypertext database with typed links” would have on our society.

But the invention of the World Wide Web would go on to change life as we know it and the anniversary of his achievement is being celebrated today across the world on that very platform.
