Snippet Wednesday...

First off, a big ol' Happy Birthday to the World Wide Web! It's 25 years old. Well, in concept it's 25 years old. In actual execution, the Web didn't hit us all until really about 1993 or 1994. But still. On this day in 1989, Tim Berners-Lee came up with the idea of the World Wide Web and shared it with his boss who authorized him working on it as a side project from his regular job.

At least there I can give you all a sunshiny Snippet Wednesday!

For a second there, I really thought I was going to miss this Snippet Wednesday. Usually I have a series of potential Snippets (along with other writing ideas) stored in my Clear app. I have compiled nothing... zilch... zip... zero... NA-DA.

But leave it to Nathan to inspire me. And he did just that tonight watching some of his shows on TV. I thought I'd use this Snippet Wednesday to recap a few of them. I promise to try and make them fun.
