Tim Berners-Lee's first World Wide Web page flickered to life at CERN on December 20th, 1990:

The inaugural page wasn't truly public when it went live at CERN on December 20th, 1990 (that wouldn't happen until August 1991), and it wasn't much more than an explanation of how the hypertext-based project worked. However, it's safe to say that this plain page laid the groundwork for much of the internet as you know it -- even now, you probably know one or two people who still think the web is the internet.

    I still remember the first time I ordered something off the web. It was around 92/93. They sold hot sauces, this was back before you could find anything hotter than Tabasco anywhere. To get free shipping I ordered 3 things, one of which was the completely unknown Sriracha hot sauce. The web site unfortunately didn't last long, but I go through about 3 bottles of Sriracha a year (as opposed to less than 1 a year of ketchup).

    My hot sauce lasted about a year, went back to the website to reorder and they were sadly 404'd.


    In this month in 1958 Project Snot was started. This has upset many people and is widely considered a bad idea.
