The Original Web Singers

According to Silvano de Gennaro at the CERN laboratory, this is the very first picture ever published on the World Wide Web. de Gennaro remembers that Tim Berners-Lee was writing software to handle GIF files for some new Internet project (ie. the WWW), and he needed some examples. This must have been in 1989. The pic above was one of those provided.

The group, Les Horribles Cernettes, consists of four women from the CERN lab, and is still singing to this day. Not bad either. Audio and video clips, and even a CD can be found on their web site. They remind me a bit of The Shangri-las.
