From June 23 to June 30, Sotheby’s will put up for sale the 9,555 lines of source code that underlie the World Wide Web. The code will be sold as an NFT commodity (a non-fungible NFT token on the blockchain network, which confirms its authenticity and ownership.

The code was written by British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee between 1990 and 1991. The buyer can access the files through the NFT, which will contain links where the files can be viewed on the Internet or downloaded to a computer. The winning bidder will also receive an email from Berners-Lee containing “Reflections on the code and the process of creating it,” as well as a 30-minute video describing the process of writing the code.

Three decades ago, I created something that, with the help of a huge number of employees around the world, became a powerful tool for humanity. For me, the best thing about the Internet is the collaborative spirit. While I do not make predictions about the future, I sincerely hope that its use, knowledge and potential will remain open and available to all of us to continue to innovate, create and initiate the next technological transformations that we cannot yet imagine. NFTs, whether they are works of art or similar digital artifacts, are the latest creations in the field and the most appropriate means of ownership in existence. This is the perfect way to package the origins of the internet.

Tim Berners-Lee

While at the CERN Research Laboratory in the late 1980s, Berners-Lee proposed an information management system that his boss described as “vague but addictive.” Berners-Lee eventually wrote implementations of three languages ​​and protocols that fill most of the 9,555 lines of code up for auction. The code posted at Sotheby’s also contains the original HTML documents that served as the user’s guide.

The Briton was jailed for spying on his ex To

In the UK, there was a curious case – 41-year-old Christopher Paul Trotman used an AirTag tag from Apple to track his ex-girlfriend. He glued the device to the rear bumper of the car and for some time tracked the location of the vehicle. And then he wrote the girl a message and revealed the fact of surveillance of her. As a result, he was detained, he is now in prison awaiting trial. Most likely, after the hearings, he will be released, but he will be banned from approaching the former at the level of a court decision.

The Briton was jailed for spying on his ex.  To do this, he used the AirTag tag.

As noted, the victim uses an iPhone, and she received a notification that an unknown AirTag was located next to her, but the girl ignored the information because she simply did not know about such a possibility in iOS.

Note that the latest improvements to AirTag include anti-stalking features. First, iPhone users will be automatically alerted if an unknown AirTag moves near them (which it did). Secondly, the tag will make a sound if it is far from the owner for a long time.

Initially, the tags only worked with the iPhone, but later the company released Android, which allows their phone owners to search for AirTag.

We previously reported on how to properly use the AirTag to get the most out of it.
