1994 – Although its only been in mainstream news for a couple years, the Large Hadron Collider has actually been around for many years now. On this day, for example, CERN receives not only approval, but also the funding to build this massive device. Because of this, CERN hands the WebCore project to the French organization INRIA (the Institut National pour la Recherche en Informatique et Automatique.)

I love tech history. I enjoy how we evolved from computers that fill a room to computers we wear on our bodies. I have put a full archive of tech history together at Wikazine. You can also talk history at Google +. I am also a podcaster and V-caster at Geekazine and a Podcast Coach at How to Record Podcasts. You can also sign up for a Helpout
