Relaunch of the 1st website—ever!

As the song by Cher promises, “If I could turn back time…”

Well, now you and I can turn back time to see the rebirth of the fist ever website on the newly launched 1993 world wide web, first proposed by British physicist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989, while he worked at CERN. The initial world wide web was a simple way for physicists in universities, institutes around the world to share information over the internet via linked documents.

In a startling definition of time, this article describes the 1st website re-launch:

The re-launch of the ancient website marks the 20th anniversary of the publication of a CERN statement on April 30, 1993, making world wide web technology — including web server software, a basic browser and a library of code —  available on a royalty-free basis.

 

…ancient is now 1993.

Sigh.

…But take a look anyway at the first ever website anyway!  http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html
