Happy WWW day!

By Paz Etcheverry, Ph.D.

Today, Saturday August 1st of 2015, is World Wide Web day.

Today we celebrate Web browsing, the online activity that brings the world at your fingertips, and the Web, which allows anybody on this planet to retrieve, roam, browse, present, and contribute to.

The World Wide Web or WWW was born on August 1st of 1989 in Geneva, Switzerland. Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist, invented the WWW as a way to communicate with co-workers via hyperlinks. A quarter of a century later, the WWW has become the main means of interaction and communication amongst earthlings!

Happy WWW day, everybody!
