Saturday October 29, 2016 is Internet Day.

“The Internet is everywhere these days, being accessed on phones and tablets, tied into our cameras and our TV’s. This day is a celebration of this culmination of computing and communication technology, and they way it has brought all our lives together.

The first letters ever transmitted across the prodigal internet, which consisted of two computers, were “L” and “O”. This was as far as they got before the ‘Net crashed, and they had to reboot to get things in running order.

This day celebrates the origin of the very first internet transmission ever sent. People are able to video conference from around the world, and the information is stored and transmitted at unbelievable rates between computers and friends and family.

Hard to believe that the first internet transmission was sent just months after Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. The internet is already slightly extra-terrestrial, with video and communication available to the astronauts and space stations circling in low-earth orbit.

Why don’t you start your celebration of Internet Day by visiting the original website, which just so happens to still be online! Take a moment to gander at its high-quality graphics, it’s utterly sleek and streamlined design, and the sheer high-tech embodied by the first website ever.

Realize that at its time, this was the internet, this was how things were designed and put together. So low was the rate at which data could be transferred that images were to be a dream of a distant future, one that would come along swiftly, and with advances and innovations that couldn’t be imagined at that point.

Then go and do your favorite things, visit with your friends, read up on your favorite forums, and generally take some time to appreciate how far the internet has come in the days that followed.” ^sPm – #sharpharmade Fr ‘Days of the Year’ http://ow.ly/i/ospUS
