The world’s first website went live 25 years ago today.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the world wide web, and Belgian computer scientist Robert Cailliau communicated between a web browser and a webserver for the first time on Christmas Day 1990.

London-born Sir Tim, 60, has been marking the 25th anniversary by campaigning for an online “Magna Carta” of rules to protect the independence of the internet and the privacy of its users.
