Back in 1992, some folks at CERN decided to put scanned photos of “the CERN girls” in some sort of “information system” the guys had just invented and were calling the “World Wide Web”.

When they posted this image online they couldn’t have imagined that pictures of women - in far lesser clothes eventually - would be an incredibly powerful and possibly the biggest driver of the internet for the next decade!
