Top 10 Internet moments of the decadePosted Thursday, November 19, 2009, at 1:53 PM
I just came across a story on Fox News website that interested me and I thought I would share it with you all and get some thoughts.
"The Webby Awards list of the 10 most influential Internet moments of the decade:
* Craigslist online classified site expands outside San Francisco (2000)
* The launch of Google AdWords (2000)
* The launch of online encyclopedia Wikipedia (2001)
* The shutdown of file-sharing site Napster (2001)
* Google's initial public offering (2004)
* The online video revolution led by YouTube (2006)
* Facebook opens to non-college students and Twitter launches (2006)
* Apple's iPhone debuts (2007)
* The use of the Internet in the US presidential campaign (2008)
* The use of Twitter during the Iranian election protests (2009)
The 14th annual Webby Awards are to be announced in April 2010. They reward excellence on the Internet in a number of categories including news and other websites, interactive advertising and online film and video."
Have they left anything out? Included something silly? Frankly, I can see how many of these have changed not only technology, but in some ways life, as we know it.
