The first ever International Conference on the World Wide Web, known as WWW1, was held at Geneva, Switzerland on 25May May 1994.
The event was organised by Robert Cailliau, a computer scientist who had helped Sir Tim Berners-Lee develop the World Wide Web. Cailliau also created a logo for the WWW. Six people were inducted into the World Wide Web Hall of Fame and each received a Chromachron watch, engraved with the WWW logo.
The event is fondly referred to as the “Woodstock of the Web” by geeks.
