For you history buffs, this is one of the most interesting primary sources I’ve seen a long time. The very first website. WOW! History Day 2014 project!!!!!!

It seems this is a week for anniversaries!

A few days ago it was the 10th anniversary of iTunes, and today, April 30, is the grand-daddy web-anniversary of them all. This was the day, in 1993, that the very first website went public (royalty free) (although the website had actually existed since 1991 as a work-in-progress).

CERN (the organization that is responsible for creating web standards) has chosen to celebrate the WWW anniversary by returning the original website back to it’s original web address.

According to the Washington Post, interest in this first website has been so high that CERN had to take it down after a brief period because it was getting so much web traffic. Interest brought the website “to its knees.”

For just $9.95 per month per office, I could have my consultants “talking” to each other and then printing a copy of the chat, thereby having an important printed record of a conversation. Saved about $33 million in annual telephone costs. I’m still with AOL simply out of loyalty for a tactic that they invented and which waved me a few hundred million dollars during the years I had that company.

    • WOW A million dollar phone bill a month! What were you selling, DRUGS? Good gravy! No wonder you retired at age 22 – or whatever! I would stick with AOL, too! I don’t have that kind of loyalty to AOL but I came into the internet the year before. My husband wanted to surf the internet before he died, so we bought a computer that would do that. Mark died Nov. 6, 1994, having surfed the internet for 5 months. 🙂

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
