Internet celebrates 25th birthday

Happy 25th birthday to the internetbdayinternet!

On March 12th, 1989 computer scientist, Tim Berners-Lee, wrote a paper outlining a design, which would become the World Wide Web.

His intent was a simple file-sharing service for scientists.

Instead, it paved the way for the tech giants of today, to simplify the things we do on a daily basis.

In 1995 only 14% of Americans told the Pew Research Center they used the internet.

That number jumped to 46% by 2000 and stands at 87% today, with smatphones and tablets always by our side.

Now, just think of where the technology could be in another 25 years!
