WE ARE THE WEB…. well we make it at least.

Reading about the internet on the internet is a funny thing, isn’t it? But it’s even funnier to think that just 15 years ago, the internet didn’t even exist! How did people survive? How did they interact with each other? In Wired 13.08’s article, “We Are the Web” we see how much the internet is evolving. In 1995, there was no such website as abc.com, which we all know is a well-known popular news website. When Kevin Kelly told the executives of ABC to claim abc.com, because it was yet to be registered, they thought of it as a joke because the internet was still not popular. A well later after telling the ABC people to claim the domain. It was available. They didnt understand how big the internet is going to blow up! Now there is over 500 BILLION web pages created! Almost impossible to come up with a website name that isnt taken. Even the amish, who do not use any technology, want to get a website up and running! Who would’ve thought!? The internet is a crazy crazy place. But it is something that everyone can be apart of.
