TECH - Happy Sweet 16th WWW

TECH - Happy Sweet 16th WWW
*as reported on Slashdot.org*
"Today marks the 16th anniversary of the World Wide Web.
According to the timeline on the W3.org site:
'The first web page [was] http://nxoc01.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html. '
Unfortunately CERN no longer supports the historical site. Note from this era too, the least recently modified web page we know of, last changed Tue, 13 Nov 1990 15:17:00 GMT (though the URI changed.)' A lot has happened in 16 years and this little 'baby' has grown into quite the teenager."
As I see it, the WWW is a happy, well adjusted teenager with a FAR too extensive collection of porn ;)
