I remember when I first heard about the internet, or world wide web, as it was called in the early 1990’s.
It was so slow, clunky, not graphical and I couldn’t understand why anyone would bother wasting their time on it.
Today, the internet permeates every facet of our lives.
Billions of people around the world communicate through messaging apps, email, and social media platforms.
By 2020, an estimated 20.8 billion “things” will be connected to the internet (including 13 billion household items like TVs, smoke detectors, and appliances).
BUT IT ALL HAD TO START SOMEWHERE
Even though YouTube, Facebook, and email are ubiquitous now, they all started out with a single post, profile, or message, and that first action is not always what you’d expect.
As today’s infographic from Academized demonstrates, “firsts” on the internet are typically unpolished, unique snapshots of the people involved in creating the platform.
From elephants at the zoo to live-streaming a coffee pot, we hope you enjoy this trip down memory lane.
