1997? I hope he is still alive. Smile

I didn't know the internet even existed back then. Shocked

After research...

--The internet was created in the early to mid 1980's, but nobody is sure of the exact date.

--The internet became commercialized in the 1990's, but nobody is sure of the exact date. Rolling Eyes

--Less than 24 hours after the internet was born, the first spam post appeared. (Just my guess - NOT fact.) Razz

--In 1995 about 24 million people were using the internet.

--In 2012 more than 2.4 BILLION people have used the internet, over 1/3 of the world's population.

What are the other 2/3 of the world doing? Shocked


The World Wide Web (as opposed to "the internet") was created in 1990 by British computer engineer Tim Berners-Lee as a platform that would be capable of storing and sharing millions of cute cat videos (or "moggie videos" as he preferred to call them).

David, maybe you could start a cat-video site, all you need is a camera in your living room. Unfortunately, "moggie.com" doesn't seem to be available, it links to an Australian mortgage site. Question Confused

And "cat.com" is the site for the Caterpillar company. Rolling Eyes

I'm 100% sure that we didn't have Internet at home in the 90s!! I wonder when we got it?? Probably mid-2000s

It hasn't been around that long. But who can now imagine life without it?

It kind of makes me wonder what will come next? The next few decades should really be interesting. Shocked

People can now live a complete life, earn a living, make friends all over the world, enjoy all the latest movies, music and books, all without ever getting up off the couch.

Maybe in the future we'll all be just a brain in a jar, who needs a body? Rolling Eyes Laughing
