Mister Right on "Error 404 Message"

By Vladan Lausevic | CryptoVlad | 16 Apr 2023

In his recent post, Mister Right writes that the history of the 404 error dates back to the early days of the internet when scientists at CERN in Switzerland were developing the World Wide Web. They worked on the fourth floor of a building where the main database was located in a room labeled "404."


The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) implemented HTTP status codes in 1992, including the popular 404 error code. As they manually allocated files and moved them across the web, they encountered issues with incorrect file names being requested. They created a notification message to address this: "Room 404: file not found."

As the internet and technology evolved, the 404 Not Found error status code gained popularity and was used in various aspects of digital life, such as books, comics, memes, and merchandise. It became a symbol of disappointment, reminding people that humans are responsible for creating and populating technology, especially the web.
