Happy birthday, Internet!

The Information Super Highway turned the big 4-0 on October 29, and my oh my, how quickly did it evolve. Remember dial-up? Geocities? ICQ? I do!

This blog post is dedicated to the technological playground that enabled information to flourish and techgeeks to become more powerful than an overpaid football player or an elected government official. If it weren’t for the Internet, I’d probably be in the library reading books instead of blogging. I’d have a social life and non-virtual friends. I’d see my family more often and maybe watch TV on an actual TV.

For better or for worse, the Internet has made an incredible impact on the world. So thank you, cyberspace, for showing us the true meaning of life.
