WWW Turns 20!

Happy 20th Birthday To the World Wide Web!

Thanks to 20 years of the Internet you are reading this blog post…according to Slate:

“On Aug. 6, 1991, a scientist at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) named Tim Berners-Lee unveiled a project for organizing information that he called the World Wide Web. Of the many individual projects that went into creating the Internet as we know it, this was one of the most significant steps toward bringing the Internet to the general public.”

Get a cupcake and a candle and sing Happy Birthday while browsing tonight!

    How time flies. I had no idea 20 years ago was when the world wide web began. There have certainly been some major changes since then.
