That means we’re about half as old as the World Wide Web — well, since it first became popular in the mid-90s, that is. The web has shaped so much of what we do, from the office to our homes. So in honor of just how far we’ve come, let’s don our flannel shirts, click to open our mental browsers, and take a little trip down virtual memory lane, shall we?

WHAT’S A DOWITCHER? Good question!
