We spent New Year’s Eve and most of New Year’s Day on the outskirts of Cornwall, Ont. Most of our time was spent watching kids play Wii or eating.
It’s nice to do something special.
I found a job posting that fits me perfectly and I would absolutely love to do it, so I applied. I’m bound to never hear from them.
And now, to complete this random assortment of minor notes, allow me to present you with a copy of one of the very first five images to appear on the World Wide Web.
Back in 1992, after their show at the CERN Hardronic Festival, my colleague Tim Berners-Lee asked me for a few scanned photos of “the CERN girls” to publish them on some sort of information system he had just invented, called the “World Wide Web”. I had only a vague idea of what that was, but I scanned some photos on my Mac and FTPed them to Tim’s now famous “info.cern.ch”. How was I to know that I was passing an historical milestone, as the one above was the first picture ever to be clicked on in a web browser!
