Champagne all around, then...

March 13 marks 20 years of World Wide Web, though for me it is a little
later as I only met the web when acquiring the Mosaic browser in '93 I
think, which was the beginning of the end of using Archie, Veronica and
gopher.

But it was twenty years ago that the HyperText and CERN paper was released.

Various online news reports on the birthday can be found of course,
including:

CERN website, an obvious place to start, tells us how the celebrations
will happen and provides links to resources (via a sensible short link, of
course):
http://info.cern.ch/www20/

The Economist, with some kind of 'scientists have to publish' hook:

IT Pro

any many many more of course....

So, Happy Birthday!
