First proposal for the World Wide Web


British engineer and computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee wrote a proposal to develop an information management system at the CERN laboratory in Switzerland where he worked, using hypertext to create a network of interlinked documents.

Berners-Lee didn't post the first website until August 1991, and it didn’t go live for anyone to access until later that month. This proposal that was first seen as "vague", would finally become the World Wide Web.
