The wonderful team at CERN has brought back the first web page ever created, at the URL it used to occupy.

April 30 is the day that celebrates the World Wide Web entering the public domain. Back in 1993, World Wide Web technologies became available to everyone on a royalty-free basis, thanks to a research group at CERN.

Without them and the web inventor, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, we wouldn’t be able to view news online right now, enjoy social networking, music and so much more.

A 1992 copy of the first web page that describes what the web was and how it could be used has been reactivated at its original URL.

While the site had already been available on the W3C servers, it is now at its original location.
