Title: Going Wayback to Dig Up Old Websites

Snippet: August 6, 1989 is a very important date in history. The way we share information, communicate and research has never been the same since that day, the day the World Wide Web became accessible to the public.

Two years later, on August 6, 1991, European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) published the first website. It contained a basic explanation of the World Wide Web (a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents.), as well as available software products, a summary of the history of the project and other pertinent information for first-time users. You can see it for yourself on the Project Page at CERN.
