Best Internet Sites of All Time
The Internet Boom!
The internet came out in the mid 1980s but, it was in 1994 when it went world wide and became available for everyone. The internet is a global computer network that connects hundreds of millions of computing devices. This absolutely blew our minds. I just couldn't imagine such technology. There was talk of a world wide web. I remember thinking, I have no idea what that means but, okay. The news would talk about us all being connected and getting news and gossip, emails, and a whole number of other things instantly. This would truly change the world as we new it.
