Internet & Networking "Long before the coming of the World Wide Web, the Minitel provided a sort of internet-in-one-country. Long before Facebook, Google or Twitter - millions of French people went 'online' daily to search for information, to book their holidays, chat to strangers or seek cheap (or not so cheap) sexual thrills."

"France (read CERN) had just a big involvement in the emergence of both those technologies."

Although partly on the border, CERN is actually in geneva which is in switzerland, not France.

CERN is a European organisation, not Swiss. Thus the location of their HQ is irrelevant.
