Happy Anniversary, Web Pages!

The first web page was published 23 years ago today on November 13, 1990 by Tim Berners-Lee at CERN.

First-ever web page reactivated on 20th anniversary of World Wide Web

The European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) has republished the world’s first web page to celebrate the 20th anniversary of free public access to the World Wide Web.

A CERN employee, Tim Berners-Lee, created the first website in 1989 as part of an effort to facilitate information-sharing between physicists at institutions around the world.

On April 30, 1993, CERN made the World Wide Web available to the public on a royalty-free basis.

The Blast from the Past   

Back in the day where "responsive design" and "ecommerce" and "search engine optimization" weren't even pipe dreams.
