I found this history fascinating.
Some facts I did not know,
he World Wide Web (“WWW” or simply the “Web“) is a global information medium which users can read and write via computers connected to the Internet. The term is often mistakenly used as a synonym for the Internet itself, but the Web is a service that operates over the Internet, just as e-mail also does. The history of the Internet dates back significantly further than that of the World Wide Web.
