Yes, the first ever website went live 25 years ago...

On 6th august, 25 years ago the world’s first website went live to the public. The site, created by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, was a basic text page with hyperlinked words that connected to other pages.

Berners-Lee used the public launch to outline his plan for the service, which would come to dominate life in the twenty-first century.

Berners-Lee wanted the World Wide Web to be a place where people could share information across the world through documents and links navigated with a simple search function.

Wow. I’ve been doing a podcast for more than 22 years. I didn’t realize I had started so soon after the web went online.
