Happy Birthday WWW

On August 7th 1991 (thats 21 years ago folks) the internet was made publicly available for the first time.

Back in the day a man called Tim Berners-Lee posted the very first pages which was a summary of the new World Wide Web project which would result in a number of hypertext documents made available to the masses via the alt.hypertext newsgroup.

But the WWW journey began as far back as 1980 with the 'Enquire' project - something that Berners-Lee and Robert Cailliau were working on at their time with CERN.

Needless to say, the WWW has come a long way since then......
