On August 7th, 1991, the Internet world was changed as the World Wide Web became publicly available.
The web was intended for sharing information between researchers but it has become far more powerful and sophisticated than anyone could have ever dreamed.
The ITKE team will award 100 Knowledge Points to anyone who can tell us the ‘inventor’ of the World Wide Web.
Each Tuesday, the ITKE team will take you back in time, as we take a look at the events that have changed technology history. Have a tip for us? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Twitter (@ITKE).
