In 1980 at CERN ( the European Particle Physics Laboratory in Geneva), Tim Berners-Lee wrote a computer program he called 'Enquire Within Upon Everything'. This work was to form the conceptual basis of the World Wide Web, an internet-based client-server hypertext system for global distributed information retrieval. In 1991, the WWW debuted, Tim Berners-Lee's gift to us - an open, nonproprietary & free World Wide Web.
Twelve years later his dream is very much part of our reality, according to Nielsen NetRatings in March 2003, 57% of Australians have online access from home & 72% use the internet from various locations.
