Stephen Dale's insight:

Do you remember the days before you carried around the world in your pocket?


That would have been before Tim Berners-Lee, a British computer scientist, submitted his proposal for what became the Web back in March of 1989. The Web turned 25 years old this week and it's hard to imagine an invention or process that has changed our lives as much in recent history, impacting everything from political movements to our love lives.

For one thing, I hated going to the library. So I am much happier having all the information in books (and more) right at my finger tips, all the time.
