He and his team mates created what in English is known as HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) or hipertext label language; the HTTP protocol (Hyper Text Transfer Protocol), and the system of object localization in the web URL (Uniform Resource Locator)

It is possible to find lots of his ideas in the Xanadu project (proposed by Ted Nelson) and in the memex (by Vannevar Bush)
