20 years ago today TIM Berners-Lee created the first ever website. Shortly after hundreds of other websites were created and so on and so forth. It wasn't really the birth of the internet but it was the birth of the website. Happy birthday.

    So was it 20 years yesterday that All Gore invented the internet so that Sir Timothy Berners-Lee could put up that first page of html? And why the fuck doesn't google have a logo for this today?

    Thanks for Everything and Happy Birthday

    Dear TIM Berners-Lee,
    On this very day (according to sources) you created the Internet (or mostly the major components that drive the Internet). I am just an ordinary Pakistani that just because of your hard work and dedication met an amazing community (TOTSE) and learned about the world. I know the Internet at this stage is huge and it’s full of SPAM and Porn but it still contains pockets of rare information which keeps people like me moving.

    You were the real driving force behind this and I know you get tons of e-mails from all over the world saying thank you but I feel one little sincere thanks wouldn’t hurt.

    On behalf of Totse Community and its Sister Communities, thank you. Because of the platform you created we’re able to share our thoughts and learn about hardships of life.

    Happy Birthday Internet and thanks TIM for keeping things going.

    Best Regards,
    A Totsean
