“Good things come in 10,000s. Happy #10kDays to the Web ? http://thndr.me/3S3CSI”
Come July 28th, the web will be 10k days old! The web is still in its infancy but through its public release, there has been a tremendous impact on lives around the world.
You can get a degree online; order medicine; learn to cook mac and cheese pizza; get real-time news from around the globe; play Overwatch with your friends (or strangers); and binge on the weirdest GIFs imaginable.
On March 12, 1989 Tim Berners-Lee submitted a proposal for a distributed information system at CERN that later became what we know now as the World Wide Web. That makes this Thursday, July 28, the 10,000th day. Until then, we’re partying like it’s day 9,999.
