October 29 is the Internet's Birthday

Happy Birthday, Internet!

Call it the Internets, the Interwebs, the series of tubes; yep, the Internet has gone through many lovable nicknames as the years have gone by, and today we're calling it the Birthday Boy (or girl! or whatever)!

The Internet was "born" on October 29, 1969, when two computers on a college campus connected; information, music, and celebrity sex tape distribution would never be the same again.

Where would we be without it? I wouldn't be here, for one thing. Would we all have boring desk jobs where we waited for the next printed memo to come in and to get thirsty so we could have human contact at the water cooler?

Wish the Internet a happy birthday and tell me where you might be today without the Internet in the comments below!
