Happy Birthday World Wide Web

Slashdot reports that the web turned 16 years old today, and they celebrate by showing us the oldest webpage that’s still unmodified.

16 wow… it seems like just yesterday it was still wearing diapers.

It’s starting to show it’s age too. Just like a normal teenager it uses bad grammar, is totally obsessed with porn, and thinks it knows everything.

So what does one get the internet for it’s birthday? A New Car? A Party?

I look forward to having a bash when the web turns 21. Should be a riot! How are you celebrating the web’s birthday?
