It is not a coincidence that CERN has launched this unusual project. It is indeed in this European body that Professor Tim Berners-Lee had developed the World Wide Web ... there was just 20 years old! The first website was launched, precisely on 30 April 1993.

According to comments reported by the BBC, Dan Noyes, web manager at CERN, this recreation of the first site is useful to future generations, so that they are aware of the path: "I want my children to be measures to understand the importance of this event: the web is so pervasive in our lives, and this is quite normal, we might not see how it has changed fundamentally. "

The values ​​of the WWW 

So this experience recalls the values ​​that inspired the creators of the Internet: freedom of expression, decentralization of information and its accessibility to all, universally. For James Gillies, a young researcher at the time and now head of communications at CERN, the first browser was not nearly as "primitive" as you might imagine: "He had good graphics capabilities. You could improve it directly. It was an amazing thing, very sophisticated! "The first browser, in an egalitarian" spirit ", allowing each user to modify and write directly to online content, something that no longer exists on current browsers. For Tim Berners-Lee, at the time, this innovation was a system that one of the features enabled, via links, "to change the topology of the information, and thus shape the state of human knowledge at all time without constraint.
