Twenty years ago, a young unknown scientist called Tim Berners-Lee created a document titled “Information Management: A Proposal”. Berners-Lee, based out of a laboratory near Geneva at the time, had put together a – albeit rough – outline of what the World Wide Web is today.
Initially proposed to create a way for people to keep track of each other whilst working on major projects, little did the now Sir Tim Berners-Lee realise that the tools ambitions would prove fruitful on a GLOBAL scale.
Now based out of MIT and leading the World Wide Web Consortium, Sir Timothy plays a vital role in the web’s future development and standards. Today however, we hope he’s celebrating and has acknowledged, for at least a minute, how much of an impact he has really had. Sir Timothy Berners-Lee, we salute you.
