Internet Celebrating
25 Years & Counting

Posted Feb 03, 2015 in STUFF

Unofficial 25th birthday of the Internet Is Here.

Many industry insiders would point to March 12th, 1989, the day Sir Tim Berners-Lee put forth a proposal to make information sharing possible over computers, as the true anniversary, however he did not release the code for his system until Christmas Day, 1990.

As of March 31st, 2011, internetworldstats.com estimated the total number of Internet users was 2.095 billion (30.2% of world population), and rising.

Overall, Internet usage has seen tremendous growth. From 2000 to 2009, the number of Internet users globally rose from 394 million to 1.858 billion. By 2010, 22 percent of the world’s population had access to computers with 1 billion Google searches every day, 300 million Internet users reading blogs, and 2 billion videos viewed daily on YouTube. In 2014 the world’s Internet users surpassed 3 billion, or 43.6 percent of world population.

It is estimated that in 1993 the Internet carried only 1% of the information flowing through two-way telecommunication. By 2000 this figure had grown to 51%, and by 2007 more than 97% of all telecommunicated information was carried over the Internet.
