Twentieth anniversary of a free, open web

Today is the twentieth anniversary of the publication of a document by CERN that made the web available to all on a royalty-free basis. To mark this occasion we’re kicking off a project to restore the first website, and preserve the digital assets associated with the birth of the web: http://first-website.web.cern.ch

The first small step in this process is the restoration of the files to the first URL: http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html

See what else is being planned – I hope this group can get involved.
