In case you haven’t heard, yesterday was the Internet’s 25th birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, INTERNET! To celebrate the occasion, Tim Berners-Lee, the man widely credited as the inventor of the internet, participated in a Reddit AMA. When asked what his biggest surprise was in regards to the World Wide Web thing he created, Berners-Lee acknowledged the internet’s unrelenting obsession with cats.
Q: “What was one of the things you never thought the internet would be used for, but has actually become one of the main reasons people use the internet?”
Q: “Did you ever post a picture of your cat?”
Berners-Lee: “Dog: Yes, Cat: No.”
