Happy 21st Birthday Interwebs!

220px-Nyan_cat_250px_frame Exactly 21 years ago today, a man by the name of Sir Tim Berners-Lee launched a pretty ambitious undertaking which he called the “WWW Project”.

His aim was to allow all links to be made to any information anywhere in the world and to give access to those links to people at no cost.

Fast forward to 2012 and the thought of life without the internet is pretty unbearable. What the hell would we do at work all day if it weren’t for Facebook, Twitter, funny pictures of cats and videos of people failing at life in hilariously painful ways?
