    The public internet turns 20 years old today! :yay: :bday: So has the internet improved your life? Made it worse? Or has it not affected you? Did people really imagine what it would become today?? Team HAL and camwhores?

    Happy birthday, world wide web!
    In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee developed a technology to help physicists in universities and institutes around the world share information. On April 30, 1993, the European science agency CERN where Berners-Lee worked, officially made Berners-Lee's W3 software public domain, letting the public at large access it.
