How the World Wide Web just happened by Tim Berners Lee
Sir Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee, also known as "TimBL," is a British computer scientist, best known as the inventor of the World Wide Web. He made a proposal for an information management system in March 1989, and he implemented the first successful communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server via the Internet sometime around mid November.
Tim is a geek. He talks about the importance of being in the right place and the right time. He put together the pieces and made the World Wide Web.
