Digital Physics rather than biodigital…

This news story about the first web page came via a friend who works on the Genome Browser at the same time that I visited CERN in Geneva and saw the first web server in the Universe of Particles exhibit:

My PhD was about the web in the 1990s, and I’m more interested in the history of the internet and the web, than in physics. However, it was fun to be standing above the Large Hadron Collider and imaging all the accelerating high energy particles under ground. I have another indirect connection because my uncle actually worked at CERN – again more internet than physics – so it was fascinating to be able to take a field trip there.
