25 years of the web
The world wide web (WWW) – the part of the internet where websites and apps live – is celebrating its 25th birthday. It was in March 1989 that the British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee came up with the idea of connecting links and nodes of information together, the basic building blocks of clicking from one page to another.
