I was born in 1990. A year later, 1991, the World Wide Web’s first ever Website was born!
So literally, I’m one year older than the Net, pretty awesome ey?!
Okay, enough with the jokes, can you possibly imagine that just 20 years ago, people had no websites, blogs, facebook, twitter, linkedin, gmail, hotmail… you name it.
THE TERM “GOOGLE IT” DID NOT EXIST BACK THEN!!
“In fact Google search engine was launched in January 1996 as a research project for 2 PHD students at Stanford University, US.”
But can you imagine the countless number of websites that exist today? i actually typed this question on google and I got the following answer:
whois.sc says: 131,671,586 by august 7, 2011
news.netcraft.com says: 464,000,000 August 2011
and I am betting there’s even more including subsites from blogs like this one and many other possibilities!
so back to the 20th anniversary of WWW, the first website, http://info.cern.ch/, was proposed Tim Berners-Lee in 1989 and was conceived in 1991.

long story short, i wonder what creations of today will become the milestones of the future.
More importantly, I hope I can be part of a milestone serves humanity till the end of time 🙂
