Happy Birthday Internets

Posted 13 March 2009 - 08:32 AM

Quote

On March 13th, 2009 the World Wide Web will turn 20 years old. Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented this world-changing layer on top of the Internet on this day in 1989. It's hard to overstate the impact this young technology has had already and it's even more exciting to think about where it's going in the future.


HAPPY BIRTHDAY TUBES!!!!

What's your favorite memory of the tubes?

I'm gonna have to say IRC, the <marquee> and <blink> tags, and pop-up ads.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Haha - damn well my favorite memory of the interwebz was the Dot com boom, and the early 2000 websites where about 1/3 of the websites were built using Front Page 2000! :)

That would have to be talking to my sister on AOL instant messenger & sending back and forth funny images and sound wav files.

Happy Birthday InterWebz! I was 17 days shy of 21 when you were born, and you have always been there for me. My fondest memory is mIRC and News Groups (now we're talking way back in the day).

Then Google came along and changed the game completely when it came to finding information on you.
