First Ever Publicly Published Webpage

first-website

I thought about posting something else that would show not exactly cultural but more of a historical background of the popular media, internet. The picture posted above is the first ever webpage that was made public in internet. As plain as it looks like, it actually holds the utmost value. This webpage is a pioneer of all sort of fancy CSS and javascript pages we see today. It tells the story of how webpage looked back in the time. It looks completely bland. It was not even possible to upload images to the server. The only possible syntax allowed were hyperlinks (blue links in page that leads to other pages) and various headers.

Most of the social medias and popular website present today are all the results of modification and further development upon the concept of this webpage. This is how the first ever Facebook.com and Google.com pages looked like:

It is so inspiring to see that we have come this far in the development of webpages, programming, servers and networks as a whole. For instance 4 billions videos are uploaded to Youtube.com each day (source), more than 350 million photos are uploaded to Facebook.com per day (source) and so on. This one picture makes us realize how far we have come in time with development of media. That is the reason, I believe this picture holds of a great value as the time passes by.
