"Though it had been preceded by a decidedly academic First International WWW Conference (with fewer than 400 participants) some

Missed that one. After all, HTTP was only an application and we had the CERN

iirc, there was a strict attendance limit for CERN staff because of the size
of CERN's main auditorium. But even if it was "decidedly academic", it did
have commercial support (DEC, Sun, SCO).
