NEWS: Happy 25th Birthday, Internet!

You don't look a day over blah blah blah...

Today - 23rd August - is the 25th anniversary of the World Wide Web being made available to the average Joe like us and you. Created by British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee at CERN in Switzerland, the World Wide Web took advantage of the internet (which was first connected in 1969), to help physicists collaborate on work from across the globe. Then idiots like us hijacked it and turned into the meme-generating hell-hole it is today. Yay!

So today, just before you boot up Twitter and flip through YouTube, why not spend a few minutes visiting the first ever website? Still sitting at it's original URL, the site is a thrill-fest to be sure. 
But hey, everything is pretty these days, and the web plays an undeniable part in pretty much everyone's lives. So here's to Timbo, and here's to the next 25 years!
