It was July 1945 when the concept of hypertext and a memory extension really came to life. when scientist urged to work together and build a body of knowledge for all mankind.

In the beginning, before the creation of the Galaxy, there was the Wanderer...
a lingering web in its wake were the robots, spiders, Worms(WWW), and Crawlers(Web)...
Bringing order to the Chaos of the newly formed
Galaxy were a bunch of Yahoos.
The wisdom and greatness of the elder
Yahoos has gone unquestioned and unchallenged for an eternity...
Seekers of Information could not obtain all of the great one's secrets,
nor could the shockwaves from the great
Excitement rattle the sacred altar of Yahoo!.
But now, there is a new force in the universe...
Hotomi Bot(1) threatens to tear apart the very fabric of the web! History of the Web

Archie was a first engine created in 1990 by Allan Emtage a student at McGill University in Montreal. The original intent of the name was "archives," but it was shortened to Archie.

Archie spread and until the University of Nevada System Computing Services group created Veronica but it was in plain text files. People shared data using File transfer protocol known as FTP now because there was World wide web at that time.

Berners-Lee proposed a project based on the concept of hypertext, to facilitate sharing and updating information among researchers from June to December 1980, with the help of Robert Cailliau they created a prototype system named Enquire.

The first Web site built was at and was first put online on August 6, 1991. It provided an explanation about what the World Wide Web was, how one could own a browser and how to set up a Web server.

In 1994, Berners-Lee founded the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
