For EnjoyTheMusic.com's Fun Friday News, Sotherby's is offering you the chance to buy the entire Internet! While some uninformed Americans might mistakenly think Al Gore created the Internet, it was in fact during 1989 that British computer scientist Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in a moment that changed the world forever. From June 23 through 30, Sotheby's will auction the first historical artifact relating to this landmark moment ever to be sold, giving people the opportunity to look into the bare bones of the architecture of the web's creation. Titled 'This Changed Everything' is a one-of-one NFT including pivotal, timestamped documentation of the Internet's creation by Sir Tim. And in a interesting turn of events, you can use cryptocurrency to buy it! The sale will benefit initiatives that Sir Tim and Lady Berners-Lee support.
