On 23 August 1991 mankind made another giant leap, we became… Internauts. Yep, 25 years ago Sir Tim Berners-Lee made the World Wide Web accessible to the public. And the world changed forever.
Sir Tim’s idea was to democratise knowledge by providing free academic information to everyone. Hmm… we kind of got distracted, didn’t we? For the last 25 years, we’ve personally been drifting around the digital superhighway wasting hours in Habbo hotel, weird YouTube holes, and trying to justify the purchase of a suit of armour for a hamster on eBay.
But the WWW has also provided some amazing car-based clips over the last few years that have made us laugh, cringe and cry. So, in the most internet way possible, we’ve collated 25 of the best into an easily digestible video listicle. Because the internet loves a listicle, so it’s a suitable present. Happy birthday, World Wide Web.
