Tim Bern­ers-Lee first started think­ing about hy­per­text in 1980 when he came up with EN­QUIRE, a sys­tem en­abling CERN re­searchers to use and share doc­u­ments. Nine years later he pro­posed an in­ter­net-based hy­per­text sys­tem, and by late 1990 he’d built the foun­da­tions of the web: server and browser soft­ware, and the first HTML spec­i­fi­ca­tion. You could barely call early HTML web de­sign; pages were func­tional, but the web de­sign ball was rolling.
