The Internet: 2 years to legal!

So apparently the World Wide Web as we know it had it’s 16th birthday yesterday.  I’m a little bummed I missed it…it would have been a great excuse to buy a DQ ice cream cake.  It’s hard for me to believe that the internet is only 16 years old; I think of all the hours I’ve pissed away online and the fact that my whole income is based on it and it just seems so well developed for a 16 year old.  Now that the world wide web is only 2 years to being an adult I guess it won’t be long til it starts getting a job and paying taxes.  Oh wait…that happened already.

I found this link of a timeline of the internet on W3.org; it’s kind of interesting to see.  Nothing about Dan Quayle in there, but there are some cool screenshots linked of the first browser…interestingly called “world wide web”.

I guess if yesterday was the 16th birthday of the intertubes, today must be the 16th birthday of porn on the net?  And tomorrow the 16th birthday of porn spam?  😀
