    Seems like someone has found the Usenet post of Tim Berners-Lee regarding the inception of the internet as we know it today (WWW project at CERN)

    Its a Usenet post from 1991. In 2001 Google bought [1] the usenet archive built by Deja.com, which included that post, and added the archive's contents to Google groups to enable searching Usenet using Google.

    Usenet post direct link: https://groups.google.com/group/com...hread/6af5808c84a771fc/042c02b1b5992dd3?pli=1

    Would be awesome if someone could also find those tarballs! But it was for sure a very cool and inspiring read.
