TECH NERD ALERT: Today is the 25th birthday of the world wide web! Shout out to all the engineers who have made blogging possible for us. I am so grateful to live in this day and age where we can take advantage of such amazing technology. Confession: I am a self coveted Google worshiper. Everything they do makes me want to learn more about technology. And, they happened to have written a great blog post celebrating today’s occasion.

And for my favorite quote from the post,

This decision enabled tens of thousands to start working together to build the web. Now, about 40 percent of us are connected and creating online. The web has generated trillions of dollars of economic value, transformed education and healthcare and activated many new movements for democracy around the world. And we’re just getting started.

Thank you baby Jesus for the internet! Also check out the Web at 25 website, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the invention of the web. In addition to technology, I also love lists. So, here is a list of 25 things you probably didn’t know about the web from the Web25 site.

Final nerd exclamation, below is one of my favorite pieces of tech art. It is a visual representation of a part of the Internet. I’m done nerding for now, sorry for the aside. Blog on, bitches!
