Dear News Media, Analysts and Friends of W3C,

Although the Web was conceived in1989 by Tim Berners-Lee and W3C celebrated that 25-year milestone two years ago, [1] this Saturday, 6 August marks 25 years that Berners-Lee posted information about the "WorldWideWeb project" on the newsgroup (like a message board) alt.hypertext and invited wide collaboration – effectively marking, in one email, the Web’s introduction to the wider world.

Please see more information about the history of the Web at the blog posted today:

For additional information, please contact w3t-pr@w3.org.  

Kind regards,
