That's coincidental as I was just reading that.

Here's the link to Cern [home.cern...]

Here's the first web site 20 December 1990
http://home.web.cern.ch/sites/home.web.cern.ch/files/styles/400/public/image/featured/2013/12/first_web_page_0.png

Interestingly, that looks like the first one I put up there, but that was way later in 1994

Just before that was Fidonet, Prodigy, Genie, Compserve, early AOL, BBS... for those of us on that at the time, the start of the "web" just seemed like another extension to what we were already doing.

But there was a significant infrastructure difference and that difference made ALL the difference!
