Toronto. The Globe and Mail’s Report on Business for Wednesday, August 24th showed a nice graph of the exponential growth of web sites since the World Wide Web (WWW) was created 25 years ago.

My thanks to Sylvia Garza for the birthday announcement icon which she posted on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the WWW.

When we joined the web just over 20 years ago there were a minuscule number of web sites. Today that number well exceeds 800 million on its way to over a billion sites. Happy Birthday indeed to Mr Tim Berners-Lee’s wonderful creation!
