CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

What were you doing back in 1992?

The creators of what we now know as the "web" or the "internet" were busy dreaming up w3.

To celebrate one of the web's "birth days" which is considered April 30, 1993, the day that CERN made the web available to a broader audience, CERN decided it would be fun to go back and find the first known website and to make sure it was on the web today for all to see. 

So the group of scientists, found that website and published it again.  Proving once again that digital is forever, even when you think it's "deleted" or not there.

WHAT DID THEY FIND AND POST?

1.  They found the earliest copy which they believe was 1992!

2.  They found the copy and have now published it with additional resources for you to read about

The early web page describes the internet as:  "The WorldWideWeb (W3) is a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents."
