Two days ago I booked two flights, made a reservation for an apartment and for a rental car — without leaving the office or even picking up the phone. All thanks to an invention made 30 years ago.

What seems so abundantly obvious to most people (I guess) is still somewhat of a technical marvel to me. This may sound like I'm exaggerating given that I'm a web developer but the truth is I am still amazed how the web has changed so many aspects of our lives so fundamentally.

That's what went through my head when I sat there, watching a live stream of birthday celebrations commemorating a medium that I was using at that very moment to watch said live stream on.
