    It was August 6, 1991, at a CERN facility in the Swiss Alps, when 36-year-old physicist Tim Berners-Lee published the first-ever website. It was, not surprisingly, a pretty basic one ? according to CERN. It centered on information regarding the WWW project. Visitors could learn more about hypertext, technical details for creating their own webpage, and even an explanation on how to search the Web for information.

    There were no visitors.




    What's changed since then?

    and once more time science give humanity an huge push forward , I was young by the time when www project start lol , don't even had a computer home by the time of course , actually 20 years ago '' computers '' means something different from what we know today ... I strongly believe the '' internet boom '' like peoples call , what happened with internet and the technology in general in last 20 years , it's about collective knowledge's , humanity / humans got over the 20 years , huge technical advantages , I strongly believe , next 20-30 years will see even more spectaculars jumps '' on the future...
