1990-2000

The World Wide Web started in March 1989, when Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland wrote a paper called “Information Management: A Proposal.” In this document, he wrote "just another program" that happened to revolutionize the world as we know it. In October 1990, Berners-Lee was joined by Robert Cailliau and together they create a working prototype of what he dubbed the "WorldWideWeb" (ultimately the name was changed to add spaces). In 1994, approximately two million computers were connected to the Internet were used mostly by academics, scientists, and corporate researchers. In 1996, Alpha Phi launched its very own website, the first member of the National Panhellenic Conference to do so.
