Internaut Day: 25 Years of Public Access to the World Wide Web (by news18)

Can you imagine a day without access to the Internet?

The World Wide Web forms an integral part of modern existence, but it was not until August 23, 1991 that its inventor, a British scientist at CERN, Tim Berners-Lee allowed its access to the general public – the non-technical people.

Today marks the 25th anniversary of public access to the world of endless information.

Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989 while working at CERN. It was originally conceived and developed to meet the demand for automatic information-sharing between scientists in universities and institutes around the world.

Subsequently, the web was opened to all. Berners-Lee is now dedicated to enhancing and protecting the Web’s future.

By definition, ‘Internaut’ is a portmanteau of the words ‘Internet’ and ‘astronaut’ and refers to a designer, operator, or technically capable user of the Internet.
