#225 Birthplace of the World Wide Web

April 09, 2014

Seeing as Penn Law has been nominated for a Webby, now is a good time to reflect and learn about the origin of the World Wide Web (and vote for us to win).

The World Wide Web is a system of linked documents (web pages) that are viewable through a browser (such as Internet Explorer or Firefox).  Though now pervasive across computers and mobile devices, it was originally designed and implemented in the early 1990’s by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN.


Here is a short video that goes inside CERN and allows you to see the birthplace of the World Wide Web!


And if you haven’t voted yet, please vote now for Penn Law to win a Webby!
