“HyperText is a way to link and access information of various kinds as a web of nodes in which the user can browse at will. Potentially, HyperTextprovides a single user-interface to many large classes of stored information such as reports, notes, data-bases, computer documentation and on-line systems help. We propose the implementation of a simple scheme to incorporate several different servers of machine-stored information already available at CERN, including an analysis of the requirements for information access needs by experiments.”
Questo è l’abstract del documento “WorldWideWeb: Proposal for a HyperText Project“, che due ingegneri del Cern, Tim Berners-Lee e Robert Cailliau, realizzarono ed inviarono affinchè venisse preso in considerazione ed accettato per lo sviluppo.
Era il 12 Novembre 1990. Vent’anni fa. Tanti auguri!
