The World Wide Web Turns 25

The WWW had it's 25th anniversary a few days ago. Many (probably most) of you have always had the web. Some of us gray beards remember the times before, when bulletin board services (BBS) and dial-up modems were all we had. The technology was different, but the discussions were just as lively. Maybe more so, because we didn't have pictures to help explain things.

Nice article (link below) traces key moments in the history of the web.

But I prefer http instead of www, it gives more than www (Logicless thought)

Yes, I had to learn ms-dos then on my new 386SX. Just upgraded from my commodore. I spent hours at night downloading one or two songs from Aimster and Napster. It used to take about 1 or more hours to get one short song. Longer if it came from overseas. Thank you Al Gore. LOL

I always thought that the web was much younger than this, huh. Crazy.
