On December 25, the World Wide Web turned 21 years old! What a cause for celebration. Just imagine if the Web had never been invented. I wrote a Hub about the birthday that you can find on my profile page: WWW Birthday. I also posted a collection of over 100 quotes about the Internet if you are looking for inspiration and something to write about. Happy birthday WWW and thank you, Tim Berners-Lee, for giving the world this wonderful gift, free of charge.
What a coincidence.. Today is my birthday too! Although I was conceived 7 years before the internet...
Amazing how much the web has evolved up till now. I am sure the inventor back then wouldn't have thought, that it would grow so large!
I forget that the internet is not as old as I think it is. I feel today like I would not be able to live with out it .
It seems like the mainstream media missed this event. Aren't you glad you found out about it here?
The real internet was born in the late 1960s. It started as a way to keep communications open in case we nuked ourselves. The it evolved into an academic tool for universities to keep in touch regarding research and exchanging data.
Then in 1994 we pimped it all full of ads and shopping and porn and hate and gossip and general garbage. Leave it to humans to ruin a good thing.
I worked with Tim B-L when he was a graduate trainee at the Plessey Company in Poole in Dorset in the 1970s. I wish now I'd talked to him more about technical things but he was so bright it was intimidating talking techie stuff with him.
I wrote a hub about him that includes a scan of my wife's leaving card signed by Tim and his then wife Jane!

Google have parocialised the World Wide WebI think that Google’s predictive input cookie has left the WWW a small incestuous place. Previously when you entered a search word or phrase you would get the results that the majority of people had found useful, now you get the local chip shop because...

The World Wide Web was born on December 25, 1990, when Tim Berners-Lee made the first hypertext communication. He gave the WWW to the world for free. It's the gift that just keeps on giving and has connected the world.
