Clearleft at CERN: celebrating 30 years of the Web
CERN is celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Web today, and we’re proud to play a small part in the proceedings.
12th March 2019
In March 1989, while working at CERN, Sir Tim Berners-Lee wrote his first proposal for an internet-based hypertext system to link and access information across different computers. His proposal became the World Wide Web. CERN is celebrating the 30th anniversary of this revolutionary invention with a special event today, and a series of other celebrations around the world.
On being invited to CERN to join the celebrations, Jeremy wrote:
I’m so excited about this! I’m such a nerd for web history, it’s going to be like Christmas for me. The whole thing will be over by mid-morning. Then, [team member and fellow Brightonian] Remy and I will take an afternoon flight back to England …just in time for the evening event at London’s Science Museum.
