The first public showing of the Web, including HTML (but probably not called
1.0!) was at the Third ACM Conference on Hypertext, San Antonio, December
1991.  The presenter was a young fellow named Tim Berners-Lee.

Take a look at

One correction, though, that I just noticed.  This item (from 1994
chronology) is wrong:

>     Marc Andreessen and colleagues leave NCSA to form "Mosaic
Communications Corp" (now Netscape)

Marc left NCSA to join Enterprise Integration Technologies (EIT) in Palo
Alto; Mosaic Communications arose a few months later.  As I recall, his
first e-mail upon arrival was to ask where he could buy the New York Times
at 1 or 2 in the morning.

I'm sure some else knows this one better.
