Oct. 29th: Internet Day

Sarah Bedford, Staff Writer

Do you ever wonder when the first message was sent over the Internet?

Well, question no more because today you have your answer. On Oct. 29th, 1969, the first ever message to be sent via the World Wide Web was sent. Although this is a fabulous mark in the technological history, the system did end up crashing half way through the delivery of the message.

Regardless, open up your laptops, tap into the Wi-fi, find the best hot-spot and celebrate the day that has allowed momentous change in everyday life and the tech world. And of course, has allowed millions of college students to procrastinate on assignments and watch and send cat videos on YouTube instead.
