Some folks believe the actual "birthday" was September 2, 1969: In Leonard Kleinrock's UCLA lab, a group of computer scientists managed to pass bits of data from one computer to another over some some gray cable. In doing so, they created the first node of what we now call (long dramatic pause) The Internet.

Wish the Internet a happy birthday and tell me where you might be today without the Internet in the comments below!
