God Made Tim Berners-Lee and Tim Berners-Lee Made the WWW

The inventor of the World Wide Web, Sir Timothy John "Tim" Berners-Lee, OM, KBE, FRS, FREng, FRSA (born 8 June 1955)

God made Tim Berners-Lee and Tim Berners-Lee made the World Wide Web, so without God, Tim Berners-Lee would not have made the web and you and I will not be on it now!

Sir Tim is now totally overwhelmed by his invention as FORBES reports on Father Of The Web Ranks Its Impact On The World.

Lest we forget, the Father of the World Wide Web is different from the Fathers of the Internet, American computer scientists Vinton Gray and Bob Kahn.

The world wide web is a part of the Internet, the Internet is not a part of the world wide web.

When you are using the world wide web you are always using the Internet. When you are using the Internet you may not be using the world wide web.

~ Jag The Difference Between the Internet and World Wide Web

Many people use the terms Internet and World Wide Web (aka. the Web) interchangeably, but in fact the two terms are not synonymous. The Internet and the Web are two separate but related things.
What is The Internet?

The Internet is a massive network of networks, a networking infrastructure. It connects millions of computers together globally, forming a network in which any computer can communicate with any other computer as long as they are both connected to the Internet. Information that travels over the Internet does so via a variety of languages known as protocols.
What is The Web (World Wide Web)?

The World Wide Web, or simply Web, is a way of accessing information over the medium of the Internet. It is an information-sharing model that is built on top of the Internet. The Web uses the HTTP protocol, only one of the languages spoken over the Internet, to transmit data. Web services, which use HTTP to allow applications to communicate in order to exchange business logic, use the the Web to share information. The Web also utilizes browsers, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox, to access Web documents called Web pages that are linked to each other via hyperlinks. Web documents also contain graphics, sounds, text and video.
