Happy Birthday www.! The blogosphere wouldn't be the same without you. Actually it probably just wouldn't be, so... yeah. Anyway here's the story (via Drudge)

In 1990, Tim Berners-Lee launched the World Wide Web, a multimedia branch of the Internet.

With Berners-Lee's "http protocol," computer jockeys the world over began making the Net easier to use with point-and-click programs.

Browsers such as Mosaic and, later, Netscape Navigator would help popularize the Web, and let a billion Web pages bloom.

Anyone could access the network, and anyone could decide what went online.

The Web became a powerful, liberating force that brought people closer together, and shaped new businesses.

Oh yeah fantasy sports teams. We used to do that by hand, now Yahoo does it all for us. And porn. Man thank God for www.
