"First Monday" was born in the summer of 1995 in a proposal to start a new Internet–only, peer–review journal about the Internet by eventual Chief Editor Edward J. Valauskas to Munksgaard, a Danish publisher. Munksgaard agreed to publish the journal in September 1995. The first issue appeared on 6 May 1996, the first Monday of May. At the Fifth International World Wide Web Conference in Paris, the first issue was distributed on diskette as well as over the Internet from a server in Copenhagen. In December 1998, Munksgaard sold the journal to a group of the editors, Edward J. Valauskas, Esther Dyson and Rishab Aiyer Ghosh. The server was moved from Copenhagen to Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago and the University’s Library. The first issue based on a server in Chicago appeared 4 January 1999.

The first successful "First Monday" conference took place 4-6 November 2001 in Maastricht at the International Institute of Infonomics. To celebrate "First Monday’s" tenth birthday in 2006, a conference took place at the University of Illinois at Chicago, 15-17 May 2006. The theme of the conference was "Openness: Code, science and content." Over 200 participants from over 30 countries took part in the Conference. Papers from the Conference were published in the [] June and [] July issues of "First Monday". This conference was generously sponsored by The Open Society Institute, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The University of Illinois at Chicago University Library and The Maastricht Economic Research Institute on Innovation and Technology (MERIT), University of Maastricht.
