I made a little pilgrimage while at CERN yesterday.
Sat in a glass case in their museum is a small black computer.
It doesn't look like much, but it's Tim Berners Lee's NeXT cube. It's the machine where he wrote the specifications for HTTP and HTML, and turned on the web.
This is the computer that changed the world.
This is the computer that changed my life.
