Happy 25th, World Wide Web!

The World Wide Web turns 25 years old today. Holy crap! I remember when he was just a young teenager.

The video above is a special message for today from Tim Berners-Lee, the genius who invented the thing. Do you remember the internet before the magical WWW letters? No you don’t. I’ll tell you, it was a nightmare. You had to go to alt.binaries newsgroups for your porn. You kids today don’t know how good you have it.

And really, without the web, I’d be stuck as a boring corporate lawyer somewhere. Ugh. I owe my career to Tim Berners-Lee. Thanks Tim. I’ll send you your cut via snail mail. I’m sure it won’t get lost.
