While it seemed like the non-fungible token (NFT) bubble might have burst several weeks back, there’s a high-profile auction coming up. British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee, who’s been named the “Father of the Web,” will be bringing the original source code for the World Wide Web to auction as an NFT. That means one lucky bidder will have the chance to own a fundamental piece of technological history. According to Sotheby’s, who is handling the auction, the NFT includes “the original time-stamped files containing the source code written by Sir Tim, a moving visualization of the nearly 10,000 lines of code, a letter written by Sir Tim reflecting on the code and the process of creating it, and a digital “poster” of the full code created by Sir Tim from the original files using Python.” Programmers and developers can see the foundations of the three languages and protocols that still remain in use today: HTML (Hypertext Markup Language), HTTP (Hypertext Transfer Protocol), and URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers). Bidding will begin at $1,000 with the auction lasting from June 23-30. The sale from the auction will benefit charities/initiatives that Sir Tim and Lady Berners-Lee support.
