Meyrin

Circuit through the two main data rooms in the CERN Data Centre. Additional activities include watching a video about the creation and development of the Web and the issues it faces today, learning how the avalanche of data produced by the physics experiments is stored, distributed and processed, and attending short talks on a variety of information-technology topics.

In 1989 the world's largest particle physics laboratory, CERN, was a hive of ideas but information was stored on multiple incompatible computers. Tim Berners-Lee had a vision of a unifying structure that would link information across different computers, and wrote a proposal in March 1989 called "Information Management: A Proposal". By 1991, this vision of universal connectivity had become the World Wide Web! The documentary "ForEveryone.Net" connects the future of the Web with the little-known story of its birth.
