The Internet (as we know it) is now 21. The internet has it’s beginnings farther back…systems that allowed computers to communicate with each other have been developed since the late 60s. But it wasn’t until 1991 that the Internet as we know it was born.
The Internet was created by Sir Tim Berners-Lee (now a Google employee). He launched the first public Web page that detailed what he called the “World Wide Web.” Originally the internet was intended to facilitate communication between researchers, but it has grown into a portal for mass communication, news and entertainment, and it offered in both the “original” dial-up as well as high-speed and wireless options!
So take a moment and think about wishing the internet a happy birthday!
