He didn’t “invent” the World Wide Web.
In 1986 an obscure research building in Glasgow staffed by boffins called THE TURING INSTITUTE began a project to perfect a way of updating SWIFT global bank manuals using HTTP(Hyper Text Transfer Protocol) and it had already gone live by 1988.
The project was privately funded unfortunately and the research couldn’t be published .. to make matters even worse the lead engineer on the project Arnaud David Rubin was killed in the PanAm 103 crash on 21Dec 1988.
Moment in time .. twist of fate .. call it what you want.
Tim Berners -Lee only picked up the already functioning TURING concept and with CERN and improved it to what we know today as the internet.
Google .. Glasgow Herald Turing Institute ... if you want to read more about this
