What is the world wide web? The answer is not an easy one as “the World Wide Web” is often used as a term interchangable with “the internet.” The World Wide Web is merely a portal that allows users to access the internet.  It is how we address domains on browsers and what makes the Average Joe able to surf the net.

Tim Berners-Lee is the man credited with coming up with the idea of the WWW.  He produced the first web-page in 1990 and just three years later, the WWW became open for use by the general public.

Where will we go next?
