Scientists Are On the Trail Of The World’s First Web Page

(June 11, 2013)--The scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known by its French acronym CERN, are searching for the first Web page.

It was at CERN that Tim Berners-Lee invented the Web in 1990 as an unsanctioned project.

Dan Noyes, who oversees CERN's website and has taken on the project to uncover the world's first Web page, says it may be impossible to uncover a clear-cut "first" because of the way data is shared, overwritten and looped around.

Among the earliest existing versions of the first Web page is one that is maintained by a professor the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
