Sir Tim Berners-Lee, in 1989, invented what would be one of the most revolutionary tools for humanity, the World Wide Web.
Berners-Lee envisioned "a large hypertext database with typed links,"named “Mesh,” to help his colleagues at CERN (a large nuclear physics laboratory in Switzerland) share information amongst multiple computers. By 1991, web servers were running.
It soon revolutionized life, bringing forward the Information Age.
