Public Internet Turns 20 Today

Crazy to think but just 20 years ago yesterday you could not access the World Wide Web. The actual Internet had existed for many years, but it was not until Tim Berners-Lee who was working at CERN at the time, developed the software to make what we know as now as the World Wide Web possible. Think just in a short 20 years how much information is easily accessible on the Internet.

Do you remember what life was like before the internet? Imagine actually having to go to the Library to do research for a paper, or trying to learn a new skill by going to a class or finding someone to teach you. Now you can just load up YouTube and pretty much learn how to do anything you want. Want to buy something? You had to go to the store and take a look at what was available, now we just load up Amazon and order away.

Without the internet many things wouldn’t be possible, who know what us here at ThinkComputers would be doing. So as we look back what was your first experience on the Internet?
