DHAKA: The first photo ever uploaded to the Internet 20 years ago has been revealed, motherboard.vice.com reported.
The women in the photo were members of a comedy group working at CERN in Geneva where Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, also worked at the time the photo was taken.
The photo was taken by Silvano de Gennaro for the group’s CD cover. Gennaro worked at CERN as an IT developer and as a member of the Web inventor team.
‘When history happens, you don’t know that you’re in it,’ de Gennaro said after taking the photo before the band got on the stage, reports daily Hurriyet.
‘We had to convince managers that CERN could connect to the Web and what a useful (thing) it was,’ Jean-François Groff, a member of the team, said.
