In honor of the anniversary, a team has been assembled to recreate a working version of the first website, a how-to guide hosted by the project's creators.
The organization issued a statement on April 30, 1993, that announced the release ofthat Web to the public.
British physicist Tim Berners-Lee created and named the Web (also commonly called "W3" for short in those days) in 1989 at CERN. Originally, it was designed as a way for scientists at different universities and other institutes to share information.
"Vague, but exciting," Berners-Lee's supervisor wrote on the cover of a proposal while greenlighting the project.
