Today very well maybe the day that the Samsung S4 goes on sale. But that’s hardly what makes April 30th remarkable. Today marks the day of the first ever website.
Born on April 30th, 1993 the World Wide Web became a a royalty-free technology available for all to use at their discretion. Included was the necessary software to start a web server, as well as a basic browser and a library of code.
It was invented by British physicist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989, who created what we call the Internet today, to share information amongst colleagues scattered amongst a number of universities. And now the orignal website, along with its original web address has been restored. Additionally, the CERN team, which now leads the project, intends to exude the original digital assets of the web and turn info.CERN.ch into a historical archive for all to see.
