1st Ever Website Design Lost

No matter what industry you are in or what job title you have from Website Design to general office work we all have one man to thank for the ease of access of information and communication that is achieved using the world wide web. No, not Bill Gates – Sir Tim Berners Lee!

As you may remember from one of our previous blogs titled “First Website Design re-designed by CERN” scientists are re-designing / re-building the original hardware that was used by Sir Tim Berners Lee to create the initial version of the global network over 20 years ago. While the initial Website Design was fairy basic by today’s standards it was, at the time, a giant leap forward in humanities history.

CERN`s project to recreate this technology is mainly for posterity reasons allowing future generations to get a real insight into the creation of the World Wide Web (or whatever it is called in the future) that has allowed for the creation of a vast amount of Website Design ideas, instant communication, access to almost any type of  information and the rise of the incredibly popular entity that is social media.

This all sounds like a great idea but it now only faces one problem – the original software / computer programme has been lost!

It would seem that Sir Tim Berners Lee and his colleagues were so busy trying to convince people to buy into the idea of the WWW that they did not keep track of the early pages of the Website Design.

Fortunately, after a public plea for this information, a saviour of sorts appeared in the shape of Paul Jones who enthusiastically tweeted “I have a copy of the page that Tim [Berners-Lee] used as a demo at Hypertext 91 in San Antonio.”

Unfortunately this was not the copy of the 1990s disk that CERN were hoping for however it is believed to be the closest copy of the original pages of the WWW.

Fortunately modern day professionals involved in computer use like Website Design constantly back up their data to make sure that similar problems to the ones currently faced by CERN and Mr Lee do not occur. Hindsight really is a wonderful thing.
