Google Doodle celebrates 30th anniversary of World Wide Web
Google displayed an animated doodle marking the 30th anniversary of the World Wide Web (WWW) on March 12, 2019. The inventor of the WWW, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, was 33 when he submitted his proposal. The depiction showed the Earth revolving inside a computer connected to a switch on its letters. Berners-Lee had envisioned a database for his colleagues at CERN to share information. The software engineer's boss let him develop a humble flowchart into a working model.
