Happy Birthday, Sir Berners-Lee!

Published on: June 8, 2013 • Filed in: Industry News

Wanted to take a moment to wish a ‘Happy Birthday’ to Sir Timothy John “Tim” Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, which was born with the first communication between a ‘web browser’ and a ‘web server’ in mid-November of 1989. Sir Berners-Lee is also a director of the World Wide Web Consortium, the founder of the World Wide Web Foundation, a senior researcher at the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory at MIT, and, naturally, a knight.

Everything on the web today, and everything we do here at 10T Web Design, builds on the Hypertext Transfer Protocol designed by Sir Tim Berners-Lee over two decades ago.

Thank you, Sir Berners-Lee, for getting this crazy thing we call the web going, and have a very happy birthday!
