HOW DID IT ALL BEGIN...?
The Internet: you love it; you need it; you can’t live without it. But how did it all begin? No single person invented the internet. It was a result of years of collaboration among computer scientists, researchers and engineers.
Can you imagine your life without the internet? Just close your eyes for a moment and think about what life was before the web. Millennials will never experience a world with no connectivity and for those of us who do remember the old days, could we say we really miss those days!?
The internet is still relatively young (celebrating its 28th birthday this year) and yet the connectivity has already produced long lasting effects. It started with a cable plugged into the phone line and now we process the entire world in the palm of our hand.
As of August 2017, there are 1.24 billion websites in the world! A long way we have come since the world’s first website was published on August 6, 1991 by British physicist Tim Berners Lee. With 3.74 billion internet users in the world as of March 2017, China has more than double the population of the USA. This incredible web of technology has connected our globe in ways we never imagined and it is an industry that is continuing to grow exponentially each year.
Today, almost one-third of the world’s 6.8 billion people use the internet regularly. From logging into our Facebook; to buying our supplies on Amazon; to googling how to cure a common cold; our lives have changed and technology has become the leading forefront of our time.
The birth of the internet was the beginning to user friendly technology, something that we believe we have created for our clients at Lexicon Travel Tech. We have great technology, the best in the business. But, we’re not just a technology company, we are connecting wires and hoping our client’s businesses grow.
