Was one of the first things I remember making it to the web, was Scott's list. Though technically the list was first posted to bulletin boards,ftp servers and yes, finger.
For the young ones, here is what the internet looked like in 1993 The list itself was available by html in 1994, if not earlier

And some background:
The Yanoff List: meeting the demand for a concise list of ``what's out
In September 1991, Scott Yanoff, a computer science student at the
University of Wisconsin--Milwaukee, created a list of six items---
telnet addresses of Internet information services. He posted the list
to internet and service related newsgroups like alt.bbs.internet and
news.answers. According to Scott, ``I posted my list one day and next
thing I knew people were writing to me with things to add to the list''
(Yanoff, 1993a). After that, Scott added the list to the University's
ftp site, gopher, and set up an email list to reach people who could
not access the list by those methods. Scott describes how the list
grew from contributions from other people, ``I owe most of the list to
OTHER people . . . that's what is great about the Internet . . . I
decided to share my list, and everyone else shares their knowledge in
helping to contribute to the list'' (Yanoff, 1993a). Today, the list,
popularly known as ``The Internet Services List,'' (Yanoff, 1993b)
contains listings for more than 135 separate services accessible
through telnet, ftp, finger, gopher, and email. Daniel Dern (1994)
calls Yanoff's list ``one of the most frequently cited or referenced
documents on the Internet.''
