On Wednesday (12th March), the world wide web marked it’s 25th birthday. On this day, Sir Tim Berners-Lee proposed an idea for what we know now as the world wide web.
I remember back in the early 1990s logging onto the Internet for the very first time. At the time, we were using an Internet service provider called CompuServe, which connected up to the Internet using a dial-up modem. This would require the use of a landline telephone line.
Back then, the internet was an amazing thing. I was amazed that I could find information on a lot of different topics. Of course, most of it was just a bunch of pages with text and links to other pages containing text.
Later on in the 1990s, we then moved onto AOL and still dialed up to get an internet connection. I was then able to play games online and got my own email account for the very first time. Heck, my family was even able to stream music for the very first time.
What were your first experiences of surfing on the Internet? Let me know in the comments.
