(but my point about mixing up "Internet" and "World Wide Web" still stands (just))
Seen on scotsman.com today :
The Lazy Guide to Net Culture celebrates 35 years of the wonderful World Wide Web
Alas, I'd have to register to read the article, but really, the title is bad enough.
For a start, they're certainly not celebrating 35 years of the WWW (which was first thought of in about 1991, (I should look that up, but it was around then) ), and secondly, whatever they are celebrating the birthday of, it's not 35 years old !
The Internet ? Much earlier than 1979 - from here , looks like something recognisable as a precursor to the Internet was around in 1972-3.
Usenet ? Well, that started in 1979, but it's got a much lower profile than the WWW these days, I doubt they're celebrating that. (And today is Mon Sep 4038 15:09:37 BST 1993. Whee.)
