    Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee on imagining worlds

    For one week the French city of Lyon became the worldwide capital of the web.

    Major players from around the globe came, along with the inventor of the web, Tim Berners-Lee.

    The British computer engineer devised the system that allowed the creation of websites and links.

    In 1989 he put these principles into effect on the information network at CERN in Switzerland, where he worked, and the web as we know it took shape.
