In 1989, CERN was a hive of ideas and information was stored on a large number of incompatible computers. Sir Tim Berners-Lee then devised a unifying structure to connect the information scattered on these different computers.
In March 1989, he wrote a proposal entitled "Information Management: A Proposal." By 1991, this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web!
Screening of the documentary "ForEveryone.net" (in English with French subtitles) followed by a discussion in French with: François Flückiger, promoter of the Internet in Europe whose responsibilities included managing the World Wide Web team at CERN after Tim Berners-Lee left for the USA.
Moderated by Maria Girone, CERN openlab's Director of Technology, in charge of the strategy for developing cutting-edge computing solutions for the scientific community.
