Happy Birthday World Wide Web!

The World Wide Web celebrated its 20th birthday a few days ago, August 6 in relative quietude.

Despite the fact that these type of “birthdays” usually are big news (so and so many years since Kennedy assassination, moon landing, 9/11 etc.), this was ignored by mainstream media. This is probably due to the start up of the World Wide Web at the time was not seen as big news. It is only when looking back that we can see that this was a really really big thing. Oh well, better luck in 2016.
