Sir Timothy Berners-Lee’s Stuck Moment as a Deflated Doer

October 18, 2011

His stuck moment:

While working at the European physics lab, CERN, Berners-Lee was discouraged by the laborious system for retrieving and sharing information.

He gets restoked: He looked at the internet as a possible communication vehicle and was inspired to create a system to navigate it, using HTML, HTTP, and URLs.

Unstuck result: Berners-Lee’s development launched the digital age as we know it, transforming how the world communicates, works, and plays.
