World Wide Web

Tim Berners-Lee’s vision of a global hyperlinked information system became a possibility in the second half of 1980. In 1985 the global Internet began to proliferate in Europe and in the Domain Name System Which the Uniform Resource Locator is built), it was born. In 1988, the first direct IP connection between Europe and North America was made and Berners-Lee began to openly discuss the possibility of a web-like system at CERN. In March 1989 Berners-Lee presented a proposal for the management of CERN to a system called “Mesh” which refers to DEMAND, a database project and software that it had built in 1980, which used the term ” Web “and describes a more elaborate system based on links integrated into the management of the information readable by the text:” Imagine, then, all the references to associate with the network address of the thing to which they refer, So that when reading this document, you can switch between them with the click of a mouse “. Such a system, he explained, could be defined using one of the current meanings of the word hypertext, a word he says was invented in 1950. There is no reason, the proposition continues, because These hyperlinks could not include multimedia documents, including images, voice and video, so that Berners-Lee continues to use the term hypermedia.

With the help of his colleague and passionate hypertext Robert Cailliau published a more formal proposal November 12, 1990 to build a “Hypertext Project” called “WorldWideWeb” (a word) as a “network” of “hypertext documents” to be seen by At this point, HTML and HTTP had already been in development for about two months and the first web server was about a month away from completing its first test with Success. “This proposal estimated that a single web reading will be developed within three months and that it would take six months to achieve” the creation of new links and materials by readers, [so that] the author becomes universal “As well as” automatic notification of a reader when new material of interest to him / her has become available. “During playback of the only goal was achieved, the authorship of accessible web content took longer to Mature, with the concept of wiki, WebDAV, blog, web 2.0 and RSS / Atom.
