Happy 40th Internet! We Love You!

Happy birthday Internet, today you turn a young 40!

Who would have thought that Google, Facebook, Twitter, and even YouBentMyWookie all started when two computers on the ARPAnet — the military-run precursor to the Internet we know today — were connected to each other in different rooms forty years ago today!

While many generally consider September 2, 1969 as one of the more defining dates in the Internet’s protracted birth, we mustn’t forget that without today the Internet may never have even been born! Of course we probably also shouldn’t forget the day in 1988 when the Internet became commercialized, allowing private businesses and individuals to piggyback on what was formerly a government and education-only network.

Regardless, Internet, go, shorty, it’s your birthday. We gon’ party cause it’s your birthday. We gon’ sip Bacardi cause it’s your birthday!
