To direct everyone's attention on the birth and the evolution of the web, TIME Magazine published a list of the Top 15 most influential websites. This is an historical marker because it will be the first time I ever agreed with a list. 5. YouTube 4. Facebook 3. Wikipedia 2. Amazon 1. Google The article mentioned Microsoft (Internet Explorer) and Netscape (Navigator). Remember them? They weren't on the list. I'm fine with that. OK. I don't agree with the entire list. But the sites that ended up as the Top 5 was no shocker to me. You may or may not agree the other 10 on the list. If you're a non-geek like me, your reaction will probably be like mine: 'Eh! It's TIME's list.' Fun fact extracted from the article: The worldwide web will turn 27 years old on December 20, 2017.
They drove the world wide web's evolution

I'm curious. Are you also on a site called Forum Coin but you have a different user name? You seem familiar to me.

It was born in 1990... Thinking back, it was like a plus back then when we put 'internet skills' on our resumes...

Oh yeah! That was a plus on you resume. Now it means nothing since my 8 year old granddaughter could put that on "her resume". She could also add and "I'm way better at it than my grandma!'

The WWW B-day won't actually be until December 20th. But we will all probably be very busy around that time of the year and might forget!
