A 50 year history of networks: 1989 - The Worldwide Web

In his March 1989 Information Management: A Proposal paper, Sir Tim Berners-Lee describes the original premise for the WWW as an approach to enable the people at Cern to share documents easily. In 1993 Cern made the web available to everyone.
