Happy Birthday Web! ‪#‎web25‬

I remember what I felt the first time I used the web. This mixed feeling of accessing information in a remote computer in other part of the world that seemed so easy and allowed me to find what I needed even from an AS400 terminal window… mixed because since that first day I felt the urge to give back to the web and at the same time all the possibilities of what's possible amazed me.

And then Mosaic happened. I think I don't need to explain what I felt the first time I saw an animated GIF (even if my modem at home ran at 2400 bps).

20 years later, I work giving back to the web and I still feel the same emotions I felt in front of that terminal window every time a new technology or a new application is announced.

Happy Birthday Web! ‪#‎web25‬
