The First Web Server

Robert Scoble recently posted this photo of the first web server. This was Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s computer that he used to invent and deploy the first web site.

I love that there is a sticker on it to prevent the entire world wide web being turned off inadvertently!

Personal trivia: I once missed a tour of the CERN facility by about 30 minutes when I was an exchange student in Switzerland. I sat for an hour outside the birthplace of the web, waiting for my bus ride home. This was about two years before Berners-Lee had set up this server.
