Does the name Tim Berners-Lee ring a bell? He is the man who, on March 12, 1989, proposed "a universal linked information system" -- a.k.a. the World Wide Web.

Happy birthday, World Wide Web!
I have no idea why, but I am fascinated by the big universe that is the Web, and how it came into being. While I don't understand how packets and nodes work, the simple fact that I'm here typing this message to people who live hundreds and even thousands of miles away from here is amazing.
I'm not going to ask you what you were doing 25 years ago, of course. But do you remember the first time you used the Internet?
