The world’s first website went online 25 years ago today

It’s the 25th birthday of the oldest website on the world wide web. Yeah!

Invented by Tim Berners Lee, the first website went live at research lab CERN in 1990

Feeling a little old right about now. To be roughly 13+ years older than the oldest website… hmmm…

Nevertheless, it’s crazy to consider all the change, all the progress that’s been made in this world as a result of the internet.

Say what you want about the proliferation of porn, or the “loss” of privacy. When you consider all the ways in which information is being made public, international and truly global collaboration is made possible, education is made more accessible and easier to communicate, new technologies evolve more rapidly and cheaply, all because of the “Internet” — this is a day to celebrate.
