The thing I find most interesting about the history of the internet is how recently some websites were created. I can’t remember life before Youtube or google, and yet these tools weren’t around to help or inform our parents generation. The most widely used social media and websites seem to have been made around ten years ago. Since then things seem to have been developed rather than invented. The main question that arises for me is what did people do before google. I google things at least 5 times a day. We are now so much better connected with information and informed on the news much quicker than the generation before us would have been. And all this information is at our fingertips, brought to us by google, which was only launched in 1998. The internet was first created for information sharing but the 2000’s created a whole new way of information sharing, and that is what I find so interesting about the history of the internet.
