Slovenia Marks 20 Years of Internet Presence


The first Slovenian web pages were created by Mark Martinec and his team at the National Supercomputer Centre at the IJS on the CONVEX C3860 computer, according to a press release from the Academic and Research Network of Slovenia (ARNES).

Slovenia's first website was followed by the pages of universities and academic and research institutions, but Slovenian companies, media and the state administration soon joined in.

Slovenia thus proved to be a dynamic and technologically advanced country, the press release of ARNES reads.

The server was transformed on 1 March 1996 in cooperation with the government information office into the first Slovenian web directory and remained the most popular Slovenian website for years.

Marking the 20th anniversary of Slovenia's web presence, the IJS set up a memorial website, which will be gradually upgraded and will describe the first years of Slovenian internet.
