This just in (Or not) – The Internet turns 30

Happy-Birthday-internet

Funny how the internet looks like a techno colored cotton ball in space

 

The internet, the most important invention of the modern age (next to the computer of course), and I’m not just saying that because I own my livelihood to it. We read from it, watch from it, work from it, play from it, communicate from & to it, and can even find love from it. Well people as of yesterday everyone’s favorite single worldwide interconnected computer network turn 30 years old. Well ok, the concept of the internet (known as the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET)) at the time) was in use in various universities in the 60’s. However on January 1, 1983 the ARPANET systems were upgraded to the TCP/IPs (Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP)) which started the foundation of the Internet we all know (and love) today. So what do you give the receptacle of human knowledge and imagination? Why give it more information of course! With Facebook and Twitter alone you can spill your guts about anything and the net will eat it up. It doesn’t have to be insightful or thought provoking either, it can down right stupid. Just look at YouTube comments for pointers. So yeah Happy Birthday Internet and if anyone sees Al Gore, give him a high five.
