The First Web page, on the Web’s 20th Birthday

| Cool Stuff Found

The World Wide Web was given to the world 20 years ago on April 30, 1993 with an announcement from CERN stating that the technology supporting the system was available to all, and royalty-free. Since then, the Web has grown at an astounding rate. The very first website was hosted on Tim Berners-Lee's NeXT computer, and now CERN is working to restore the original site and its URL, along with the original Web servers. It's an amazingly cool project, and until it's completed you can at least see what that first site looked like 20 years ago. It isn't quite as flashy as sites today, but it is definitely Flash-free.
