Happy International Internet Day - Homer Simpson reading 'Internet for Dummies'

On this day in 1969, the first message was sent between two computers over 300 miles apart, from The University of California to The Stanford Research Institute. The first message was simple, and was supposed to  just read 'login' but a computer crash truncated the message and instead it simply read, 'Lo...'. 

And oh boy, it's amazing to see how far we've come. From the early days of the personal computer, to iPhones and now the gravity sucking black-hole that is our lives in the 21st century. 

We think about sums it up, don't ya think? 

The Internet has turned the world on it's head in the last 50-years. Breaking down the barriers between space and time, the world wide web as turned the entire world into a single community.  

A lot can happen on the Internet and in just a single minute, millions of people around the world could be doing any number of things. This cool graph helps show just what those things might be. 

So enjoy International Internet Day and let us know in the comments what your most thankful for about the Internet.
