Internet Is 30 Years Old

Elliotte Rusty Harold reminds us that Internet went into the 30s on 22nd November 2007. A network of heterogeneous networks, that gives you and me the freedom to choose the hardware and the software, which is what the Internet is. I cannot imagine my life without Internet today. It is great to read the WWW summary by Tim Berners Lee at this time, which builds on this philosophy.

We seem to just use, not learn from, earlier inventions and innovations. I hope we will get better.
