While the Internet has the potential to hold endless information, what would be the use if there was no way to track or access the info you wanted?

Realising this some 30 years ago, Tim Berners-Lee – then a fellow at the European Council for Nuclear Research (CERN) – sent his managers a memo called ‘WorldWideWeb: Proposal for a HyperText Project’ on Nov 12, 1990, where he outlined his vision for what would eventually become the World Wide Web.
