On 12 November 1990, Tim Berners-Lee proposed what we know today as the World Wide Web. While that proposal had nothing to do with Nicaragua or, well, anywhere specific, it is what created a Cyberspace that makes sites such as NicaLiving possible.
The original proposal can be read on the W3.org web site. If anything stands out it is that it was a small project. The result, of course, has been huge.
