Happy Birthday World Wide Web, you are 30.

I figured that not only was it a google doodle, none of us would even be here today on this forum. To be clear, this is for the birth of the World Wide Web, not the internet, that birth was back in 1969. Extra credit (without googling it, what the first message was, and what it was supposed to be.)

So list some of your favorite, or not so favorite memories from the World Wide Web.

I still remember my AOL dial up CD and that login, sound and "You got mail!"

I miss when the internet wasn’t commercialized, and just a few small communities and sites where us few nerds could hide out. Now everyone uses the internet, and it’s nothing more than a marketing opportunity for a few massive companies.

The internet became quite commercialized in the early to mid 90s its just that most of the big dogs back then are now gone because of the dot com bubble bursting in the early 2000s

But before 95 it was more and more of an open range, although you could argue that because of how big the internet is you can always escape the vapid darkness of commercialism.

But since i like you and this post you get a +1 anyways.

My neighbor used to use all of the AOL CD's (which used to come with alarming regularity in the mail) as reflectors to keep the deer out of his garden. He always swore by them but there's a fairly regular traffic pattern of deer going through his yard so I have my doubts.

I do miss the modem handshake sound but certainly not the 9600 K speeds of my modem.

I didn't know I was born on the same day as the world wide web..... thats pretty neat.

I used to have AOL dial actually back in 2006 when we got our first computer. I loved every second of it even though it took forever to actually do anything. Pretty much all I did was message my friend on aim and play toontown, neopets, and other random games.

I legit cannot imagine my life without the internet so it’s definitely a happy birthday from me. Been at least able to use computers since before I even became a kindergartner, and now it seems like something that’ll likely become a part of my lifetime career. Crazy.

Internet is what i do for my job, it is what i do for a hobby.. SO i dont know what i would do without internet either, both my personal and work life would be much different.
