Edmund Roche-Kelly was kind enough to get in touch and note this link — http://home.mcom.com/home/whatsnew/whats_new_0993.html:
September 3, 1993
IONA Technologies (whose product, Orbix, is the first full and complete implementation of the Object Management Group’s Common Object Request Broker Architecture, or CORBA) is now running a Web server.
An online pamphlet on the Church of the SubGenius is now available.
Guess who was responsible for those two ;)
I was, indeed, running the IONA web server — it was set up in June 1993, and ran Plexus, a HTTP server written in Perl. IONA’s server was somewhere around public web server number 70, world-wide.
The SubGenius pamphlet is still intact, btw, although at a more modern, “hyplan”-less URL these days. It’ll be 15 years old in 6 months… how time flies!
