British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invents the World Wide Web, the system of interlinked pages on the Internet.
Berners-Lee also develops the uniform resource locator (URL) that identifies Web resources and the Hyper Text Markup Language (HTML) used to design them.
In 1992, Berners-Lee also uploaded the first photo to the Web. The photo was of an all-girl, physics-themed rock band.
After a decade of development, 3M introduces its DiamondGrade™ Reflective Sheeting.
Designed with microprisms, the sheeting is widely used on traffic signs to brighten their appearance in dark and stormy conditions.
