Haiku: First Internaut

Today is Internaut day, the anniversary of the opening of the World Wide Web to the public by CERN on August 23, 1991. We used to consider a generation to be approximately 25 years so, to my thinking, 2016 now means that the web has come of age. There are billions of people now who cannot comprehend a time before the web existed. We live in a time of faster, borderless, communication and more open exchange of ideas. Society may still struggle with this shift in global information flow, but personally I think it has been a positive experience so far.

I take the opportunity acknowledge the world’s first Internaut, Tim Berners-Lee, using the much older medium of haiku:

~ The first interanut ~

Connectivity

Information free flowing

We thank you, Sir Tim.
