Transcript of "The World Wide Web By A. Epperson"

  1. 1. The World Wide Web By: Ashley Epperson
  2. 2. What is the World Wide Web? <ul><li>The World Wide Web is all the sites, videos, information, and entertainment that we put on there that is connected to each other by the URL(Uniform Resource Locator). Ex: http://www.thisisanexample.com . The http://www . and .com are the things to most always have on a web address. </li></ul><ul><li>The World Wide Web is built on hypertext and hypermedia. </li></ul><ul><li>Hypertext is certain words that are linked to another page. Those are the one that are underlined and highlighted. </li></ul><ul><li>Hypermedia is things such as images, videos, and sounds. </li></ul><ul><li>HTML(Hypertext Markup Language) transmits web pages by using codes, hyperlinks, and ect. HTML basically uses codes and web addresses to bring up the correct web pages that you click on. </li></ul>
  3. 3. CERN <ul><li>CERN stands for European Organization for Nuclear Research. </li></ul><ul><li>CERN is a High-Energy Particle Physics Lab in Geneva, Switzerland. </li></ul><ul><li>CERN is an extensive community that has about 60 countries and 8000 scientists. </li></ul><ul><li>Tim Berners-Lee was a scientist at CERN. </li></ul><ul><li>The idea for the World Wide Web was created at CERN by Tim Berners-Lee. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Tim Berners-Lee <ul><li>Tim Berners-Lee, with the help of Robert Cailliau, invented the World Wide Web in 1990. </li></ul><ul><li>The first proposal for the World Wide Web was made by Tim Berners-Lee, at CERN, in 1989. </li></ul><ul><li>Tim Berners-Lee was born in London, England. </li></ul>
  5. 5. World Wide Web vs. Internet <ul><li>Is the World Wide Web and the Internet the same thing? No. </li></ul><ul><li>People sometimes use the World Wide Web and the Internet as synonyms but they are two different things. </li></ul><ul><li>Think of it like this: The Internet is the container and the World Wide Web is its contents. </li></ul><ul><li>Basically, the Internet is all the computers of the world connected and the World Wide Web is all of the videos, sites, information, entertainment, ect. that we put on there. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Other Facts <ul><li>August 6, 1991 is the date that the web was a publicly available service on the internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Tim Berners-Lee is now the director of the World Wide Web Consortium. </li></ul><ul><li>The World Wide Web consortium is a international gathering where a people meet to try to make the Web better. They want the web to reach its full potential. </li></ul><ul><li>2009- There are now over 100 billion live web pages. </li></ul><ul><li>The World Wide Web began as a net worked info project at CERN by Tim Berners-Lee. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Quotes by Tim Berners-Lee <ul><li>“ Anyone who has lost track of time when using a computer knows the propensity to dream, the urge to make dreams come true and the tendency to miss lunch.” – Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul><ul><li>“ Compared even to the development of the phone or TV, the Web developed very quickly.” - Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul><ul><li>“ Physicists analyze systems. Web scientists, however, can create the systems.”- Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul><ul><li>“ Sites need to be able to interact in one single, universal space.”- Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul><ul><li>“ The important thing is the diversity available on the Web.”-Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul><ul><li>“ You affect the world by what you browse.”- Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul><ul><li>“ The Mobile Web Initiative is important - information must be made seamlessly available on any device.”- Tim Berners-Lee </li></ul>
