CERN to Relaunch World's First Web Page

First published twenty years ago


Prof Tim Berners-Lee developed the first ever web page while working at Cern in the 1990s, and the recreation of it will allow future generations to understand the hardware and software that made the first browsing experience possible.

Dan Noyes, the web manager for Cern's communication group, told the BBC: "I want my children to be able to understand the significance of this point in time: the web is already so ubiquitous - so, well, normal - that one risks failing to see how fundamentally it has changed."
