Today is the World Wide Web's 25th birthday. So we thought we'd grab some cake...
Maybe even play with some gifts...

And be grateful for the connectivity Sir Timothy Berner-Lee's invention has brought us.
Even if it can sometimes be a scary place...
The Internet has brought us plenty of laughs...
and achievements we applaud, like allowing us to share goofy gifs of Captain Jean-Luc Picard and First Officer William Riker with friends we've never even met in person.
So thanks for joining The Switch in celebrating the network that lets you read us everyday. Bye now.
