In a new statement released on Tuesday, April 30, CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, announced it would work on restoring the world's first website.
This project aims to preserve some of the digital assets that are associated with the birth of the web.
For a start we would like to restore the first URL - put back the files that were there at their earliest possible iterations. Then we will look at the first web servers at CERN and see what assets from them we can preserve and share. We will also sift through documentation and try to restore machine names and IP addresses to their original state. Beyond this we want to make http://info.cern.ch - the first web address - a destination that reflects the story of the beginnings of the web for the benefit of future generations.
It's been 20 years since CERN first published the document that would allow for the World Wide Web to exist.
