    • The World Wide Web By: Ashley Epperson
    • What is the World Wide Web?
      • 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.
      • The World Wide Web is built on hypertext and hypermedia.
      • Hypertext is certain words that are linked to another page. Those are the one that are underlined and highlighted.
      • Hypermedia is things such as images, videos, and sounds.
      • 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.
    • CERN
      • CERN stands for European Organization for Nuclear Research.
      • CERN is a High-Energy Particle Physics Lab in Geneva, Switzerland.
      • CERN is an extensive community that has about 60 countries and 8000 scientists.
      • Tim Berners-Lee was a scientist at CERN.
      • The idea for the World Wide Web was created at CERN by Tim Berners-Lee.

      • “ Physicists analyze systems. Web scientists, however, can create the systems.”- Tim Berners-Lee
