Milestones

Sunday was the 25th anniversary of the first web site on the World Wide Web.  Granted, it wasn’t accessible for almost another year, but still.  Hard to believe that the Web is so recent, particularly when you consider that it would take several more years before people began to be aware of it beyond educational circles.

How many things that people once took for granted have been displaced by the World Wide Web and subsequent, related technologies?  Phone books?  Bookstores?  The list is probably astounding.
