The invention of the World Wide Web (WWW) has been claimed by many.  However, Englishman Sir Tim Berners-Lee is credited with its development in 1989 when he was consulting with the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Geneva, Switzerland.  It was developed to allow scientists to communicate with each other over different computer platforms.  Sir Berners-Lee, a child prodigy and son of mathematics professors, made his first computer at age 10 from an old TV and miscellaneous electrical components.  He developed the protocols of Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), Hypertext Mark-up Language (HTML), and Universal Resource Locator (URL) which made it possible to share information around the world.
