Happy Birthday Internet

How embarrassing!

I learned it was the Birthday of The Internet today - from The Internet itself! (Isn't that like someone you know reminding you that it's their birthday?..)

Of course, the actual date of creation for what has since become the Hive Mind of humanity has been disputed.

However, the initial connection of data-transmitting cables was similar to the first neurons growing in an embryonic brain.

When I was little, the 60's seemed like ages ago. Now I'm like, "1969, the year the Internet was invented was only 9 years before I was born?!?" Ahhh yeah, getting older...

I can say pretty confidently that I would rather been born here in the Information Age than 99% of other known periods of human history.
