The very first website ever made returns to the Internet

Just over 20 years ago, the World Wide Web was opened to all, setting off one of the biggest transformations in technology and altering the way we communicate.
To celebrate the occasion, the creator has brought the world's first website back to life.
Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, launched the world's first website in the early 1990s.
The site only included text and instructions on how to use the World Wide Web, an internet network that was designed for universities to share research.
On April 30, 1993, the website was updated with a statement announcing that the source code for the World Wide Web would be available for everyone, turning "www" into a ubiquitous line for accessing the internet.
The website eventually went offline. But on Tuesday, CERN, the Europe-based organisation behind the World Wide Web, restored the site to commemorate the anniversary.
And the site:

Neat stuff.
