Apparently next month will see the 25th birthday of .com.
It is hard to believe it has been going that long, but the first .com domain name was apparently registered in March 1985.
How things have changed.
I remember starting my first job on a local newspaper - we had one computer that was connected to the internet and you had to pay for a hotmail account - therefore nobody actually had one. We relied on fax machines and if you wanted to do any research you had to use a thing called a library.
Going back even further to when I was at university (1993-1996) we had some computers in the library that allowed you to look up books, but some clever IT students I knew had managed to link up Doom at the IT department - a group of us used to sneak over there at 10pm and play for hours!
This of course was when a PlayStation 1 would set you back over £500 and its graphics were thought of as cutting edge.
The pace of change is quite frightening and is pretty difficult to keep up with at times. I wonder where on earth we will be in the next 25 years?
That is if the world doesn't end in 2012.
