the Internet is 40!

did you know that the Internet has just celebrated its 40th "birthday" earlier this month - 2 september? thanks to this ingenious invention - and people like the World Wide Web founder, Tim Berners-Lee - so many great (and not so great) things can now be achieved in our everyday life, connecting people, sharing and exchanging information all around the world.

i can't imagine how different my life would have been without the Internet - emails, chats, websites, online programmes, e-applications, forums, blogs, social networks, tools etc. :)
