Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday to you.
Happy Birthday [alt.30candles.install] dear interwebs.
Happy Birthday to you.

For those of you wondering....  March 12, 1989 is the birthday of the world wide web.  So the internet, as we know it, is now 30 years old.  That's right... 30 years old, and still living in your basement, sitting in his underwear eating Twinkies and Suzy-Q's, while trolling online threads.

Still lots of porn sites, and spam.

The interwebs might be 30 years old, but isn't it time for it to "grow up"?

It isn't really 30 years old, Alan.  That's fake news from the mainstream media and propagated by the North Koreans and the Tahiti cabal.

Should we be sending thank you notes to Al Gore?  At 30, you would hope the Internet would grow up, instead we are witnessing lots of growing pains. A

School is never out for the Successful.

It seemed like a good idea at the time BUT 30 years later Zuckerberg and the like have become the Orwellian Big Brother. Pandora's Dot.Com box has been opened and there is NO going back.

Alan- I remember when Larry tried explaining to me what the World Wide Web was. I couldn't understand why anyone would want to chat with people all over the world.
