About Me
I am a third year PhD student (my how time has flown...) working within the ATLAS Collaboration, which is one of the multi-purpose detectors installed at the Large Hadron Collider in CERN. I have completed a period of 18 monthes living and working out at CERN on a long-term attachement from my home institution (Royal Holloway, Univeristy of London). This tumblr is a platform from which I can try to educate and inform others interested in particle physics and wonderful science, as well as provide some insight into the workings of a PhD.

You can find my personal tumblr here.

Twenty years of a free, open web!

Twenty years today, the code required to run a web server was made freely available without any royalties. This marked the start of the World Wide Web, which was named by Tim Berners-Lee back in 1989, as a method of sharing and disseminating information between physicists around the world!

You can find out more about the creation of the World Wide Web here.
If you’re feeling particularly nostalgic, you can also visit the first website ever, with a snapshot restored from 1992 (earlier ones have not been found!): http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html
