WWW was born 20 years ago

Posted on Sunday, August 07 2011 @ 22:42:56 CEST by


Wired writes Tim Berners-Lee published the world's first website 20 years ago on August 6, 1991. The page was published from his NeXT computer at the CERN facility in Switzerland, it centered on information regarding the WWW project and could only be visited by Berners-Lee's colleagues at CERN because they were the only ones who actually had web browser software. Adoption of the www gained serious momentum in 1993 with the launch of Mosaic, one of the first graphical browsers.
It was August 6, 1991, at a CERN facility in the Swiss Alps, when 36-year-old physicist Tim Berners-Lee published the first-ever website. It was, not surprisingly, a pretty basic one — according to CERN:

Info.cern.ch was the address of the world’s first-ever web site and web server, running on a NeXT computer at CERN. The first web page address was http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html, which centred on information regarding the WWW project. Visitors could learn more about hypertext, technical details for creating their own webpage, and even an explanation on how to search the Web for information. There are no screenshots of this original page and, in any case, changes were made daily to the information available on the page as the WWW project developed.
