Have you ever wondered who created the internet?

Tim Berners Lee was  born in London , 1955. Tim is best known for creating the world wide web.

At a early age, Tim  became to love electronics. When he was older he built his own computer using: a soldiering iron, TTl gates, an M6800 processor and a old television. Soon later he worked on a bar code technology and writing typesetting software.

In 1989 he proposed a global  hypertext project to be known as the World Wide Web .

Tim is the currently the  director of the World Wide Web .He has recently written a book  named ‘weaving web’.

He also created the first web browser and the editor of the worlds first website (http:\\info.cern.ch.) which was launched on 6 August 1991. It explained what the world wide web  concept was and gave users an introduction to getting started with their own website.

The internet has affected  a lot of people, in the way people communicate and life their lives. I think people should thank Tim for it.
