All hail the internet

Today marks 25 years since the internet went public, and Facebook is acknowledging this slice of history, which completely changed the world as we know it, by drawing attention to the day on newsfeeds world wide. A perusal of the social media activity around the day reveals some pretty great throwback posts. 

Much like it does for friend’s birthdays (thankfully), Facebook has reminded everyone that it is in fact, Internaut Day (an amalgamation of internet and astronaut), which marks 25 years since Tim Berners-Lee enabled non-technical computer experts to use the Internet in a simple and quick way, making it accessible to billions of people around the world.

So, we can all thank Berners-Lee for connecting us all and enabling us to share with one another and for the eventual proliferation of cat videos and the glory that is memes.
