In 1989, British scientist at CERN Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web (WWW). He developed it to enable the automatic sharing of information between scientists in universities and other global institutes.
The idea was to combine the technologies of personal computers, computer networking and hypertext.
Berners-Lee wrote a proposal of the WWW at CERN in 1989. The following year, Belgian systems engineer Robert Cailliau helped to refine the proposal further. In November 1990, they published a formal proposal that showed principal concepts and defined specific terms behind the web.
The project described a hypertext named WorldWideWeb, where a web of hypertext documents could be explored by browsers.
An interface was provided to encourage the adoption of the WWW and applied to CERN's computer centre documentation and its help service.
The world's first website was Infor.cern.ch, and the first web page address was http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html.
It focused on information regarding the WWW project, teaching about hypertext, technical know-how for creating a webpage, and instructions on how to search the web for information.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
