Happy Birthday Internet!
I saw a story this morning that the Internet is turning 25 today!
The REAL guy who came up with the idea (sorry, Al Gore) wrote the paper on March 12, 1989, about “a proposal to make information sharing possible over computers, using nodes and links to create a web that would eventually stretch worldwide and become the modern internet.”
His name? Sir Timothy Berners-Lee.
I saw also that in 1995, only 7 percent of Americans used the Internet every day. By 2005, it was 46 percent.
Today, 87 percent of Americans use the Internet every day.
According to Pew Research Center, 15 percent of American don’t use the Internet or email. Also, 44 percent of Americans ages 65 and older do not use the Internet, and these older Americans make up almost half (49 percent) of non-internet users overall.
Do the math. Basically, everyone under the age of 65 in this country uses the Internet every day.
Excuse me, I have to go find a picture for this story online. …
