The original NeXT browser

20 years ago TODAY, CERN released the technology needed to run the WorldWideWeb freely available.

With this simple altruistic act, the information-based revolution began spawning entire industries that were not even conceived of even a few years previously.

By late 1993 there were 500 websites.

Today there’s somewhere in the region of 630 million.

Without this project spinning out of CERN, we would probably still prefer dogs and maybe look at things a little bit differently.

If you’re of a technical bent, you could even try and get the first web browser up and running (aside: it’s written in Objective-C which is used to write the vast majority of iOS apps).

The first website


537 of you tried to use one of the 10 redemption codes for Broadsheet code zombie web master Karl’s new app, Santa Report, since yesterday evening

537

So to give the 527 people that didn’t get a chance, Karl has another 15 codes for YOU to grab.
