The World's Oldest Web Page (And Space Jam)



For the web's 20th birthday (you guessed - today) CERN has restored the world's oldest website at http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html. Take a look at it, and see what the web was like in those days (all of it, actually.)

Only three years younger is Warner Bothers' promo website for the 1996 movie Space Jam at http://www2.warnerbros.com/spacejam/movie/jam.htm (hat tip to Telepolis magazine) Amazingly, this is not restored or anything, the site simply never went away in the first place. Take a look at this one, and get eye cancer.

If you`re a little acquainted with Web Design/Engineering then don`t forget to check out the source code of the page! This piece of crap illustrates what a long way design has come since the nineties...
