In 1989, Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web while working at CERN (The European Organization for Nuclear Research). He identified the three core technologies that serve as the foundation of today's web: HTML, URL and HTTP and went on to create the first web page editor, browser and server. Since, more than half the world’s population is online, profoundly democratizing access to information and transforming the way we live. Berners-Lee set up the Web Foundation to advocate for the web as a public good and a basic right.
