The internet was born in 1989 and didn’t really develop into what we know it as now(the world wide web) until the early to mid 90s. So the internet is 23 years old, the same age you were when you began your 2nd year of law school. At that point you were still quite unsure of exactly where you were heading, but you were burning the midnight oil and heading there fast. The internet is in this same stage of life, rapidly expanding due to the ever increasing amount of users(rapidly expanding middle classes in Asia) with access as well as the exponential increase in processing power over time. Without search engines to keep track of all the data that is generated the internet would really be a chaotic mess. This infographic illustrates all the hard work that goes into making the internet the most valuable tool in mankind’s history.
