Any idea of a forum where I could ask this? I couldn't find a methodology or general science Stack Exchange. I'm completely at a loss for where to look by now.

comment What technology can result from such expensive experiment as undertaken in CERN?
The web was invented by Tim Berners-Lee while he worked at CERN (check out the link in my first comment). The web is not the same as the Internet, which had by then already been around for decades.

@CuriousOne I don't think the web is small potatoes compared to anything Google has done, or even everything that they have done.

+1 for mentioning the birth of the web. I believe TBL himself has said HTTP and HTML would very likely be have been proprietary protocols if they had been developed by the industry rather than in the very open environment at CERN.

Ununseptium and above are temporary IUPAC names, which may later be replaced.

Sounds like a good candidate for the XKCD what if? section.
