[image: livestream] <https://livestream.com/internetsociety/web30>In 1989
the world’s largest physics laboratory, *CERN <https://home.cern/>*, was a
hive of ideas and information stored on multiple incompatible computers. *Sir
Tim Berners-Lee* envisioned a unifying structure for linking information
across different computers, and wrote a proposal in March 1989 called
Management: A Proposal <http://info.cern.ch/Proposal.html>*".

By 1991 this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web.

To celebrate 30 years since Sir Tim Berners-Lee's proposal and to
kick-start a series of celebrations worldwide, CERN hosted a *30th
Anniversary event <https://web30.web.cern.ch/>* in the morning of 12 March
2019 in partnership with the *World Wide Web Consortium
<https://www.w3.org/>* (W3C) and with the *World Wide Web Foundation
<https://webfoundation.org/>*. Later in the day the *Science Museum
<https://www.sciencemuseum.org.uk/>* in London, the home of *the original
NeXT Computer <http://bit.ly/2DZeF8O> *used by Sir Tim to design the World
Wide Web, ran a *second event
also in partnership with the World Wide Web Foundation.

Sir Tim spoke at both events, and both will be restreamed in full
