August 1st, World Wide Web Day
Today, August 1, is World Wide Web Day.
The World Wide Web was conceived by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 at the CERN centre in Geneva, Switzerland, as a way for him to communicate with co-workers via hyperlinks.
That makes the WWW 29 years old today. It seems like it has been around a lot longer and for some it has been here their whole life.
On daysoftheyear.com they say the Web has now become the main means of communication for people around the world.
