Celebrate World Wide Web Day on August 1 with a nod to the incredible impact it's had on our lives. The World Wide Web was created by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989, and it has since revolutionized how we communicate, access information, and stay connected. It's hard to imagine life without it now, but before its invention people were relying on libraries, newspapers and magazines for news and information. Now you can find any answer you need in a matter of seconds! Let's take some time on this day to be thankful for the amazing technology that is the World Wide Web.
