Tim Berners Lee, by Filippo C.Presentation Transcript
HIS EARLY LIFE AND THE FIRST PROJECT Tim Berners-Lee was born in 1955 in southwest London. He received a first-class degree in Physics in 1976, attending The Queen’s College since 1973. The worked at CERN, in Geneva, initially from June to December 1980 like an independent contractor. During this period he proposed a project based on the hypertext (a text displayed on a computer or other electronic device) aimed at sharing information between researchers, and he built a prototype system called ENQUIRE.
THE CREATION OF THE WWWFrom December 1980 to 1984 he left the CERN and workedon a project of a real-time remote procedure call, anexperience in computer networking.In 1989, back to CERN, the largest internet node in Europe atthat time, Berners-Lee found a way to join hypertext with theinternet. He connected it to the domain name system and theTransmission Control Protocol, and the result was the WorldWide Web. In 1990, produced a revision of his idea.The first web site was put online on 6 August 1991, and itcontained a description of what the www was, how a personcould a web browser and how to set up a web server.
HIS CAREER AFTER THE WWWIn 1994, at MIT of Boston, Tim Berners-Lee founded the W3C(the World Wide Web Consortium), an organization with thepurpose of working in the development of standards for theworld wide web. And it’s actually headed by him.In 2009 Tim Berners-Lee, as announced by the British PrimeMinister, would work with the UK Government to make datamore accessible to the web.
WORLD WIDE WEB ISN’T INTERNETThe World Wide Web is no the same of the Internet. Actually,the Web is composed by text documents and variousresources, linked by hyperlinks or URLs. In short it is anapplication of the Internet.Instead, Internet is a global system of interconnected computernetwork, like million of computers connected to each other.
