World's First Web Page

Reposted by CERN: 20 Years Later

Hayley Tsukayama, Washington Post:
In an effort to preserve the Web’s history, CERN (the European Organization for Nuclear Research) republished the world’s first Web site — two decades after physicists made the technology behind the Web open to everyone.
Preservation of the site is part of a larger project, she writes:
The group is also trying to preserve the first hardware used to host early Web files, including, the BBC reported, a 1990s era, $6,500 computer built by NeXT — the company founded by Apple co-founder Steve Jobs after he was ousted from the company in 1985. The computer is still intact but does not work.
History, intact.
