Lost, not yet found – the first web page [Article]

NPR’s Geoff Brumfiel is surprised that while you can find a lot of things online, there’s one important piece of the Web’s own history that can’t be found through a search engine: the very first Web page is lost.

An old optical disk drive was lost at a conference in California. On it is one of the very first iterations of Sir Tim Berners-Lee’s Web page from 1990. “It was such a beautiful object, that optical disk, that someone maybe has it on their coffee table or their bookshelf, and if we could find that, that’d be great,” he says.
