ir Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web at the CERN Labs headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland between 1989 and 1990. The WWW was made available for general use on August 23, 1991. Today, we’re celebrating the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web and the Internaut’s Day.

Who is an Internaut?

An Internaut is a person who knows how to design and access the internet. This involves finding information on various websites, blogs and web servers using search engines. Basically, you’re more of an Internaut if you have more technical knowledge about the internet. Like, if you know about the domain name system, URLs, how the search engines work, etc. It would be great if you can contribute as a designer of the internet.

Initially, the members of the IETF were called the Internauts, but with time, the horizon of the term expanded for common folks also. This is because more and more people have learned to use the internet and develop websites.

So, you’re an internaut as you can open websites, download files, and also know some technical stuff about the internet.

Happy Internaut’s Day
