This is different in each country, but here in New Zealand we are aloud to get a learners’ driving licence as soon as we turn 15. Ironically, that’s what the Internet is turning today. Regardless of what we called it – Web 2.0, Web 3.0, Web 4.0, it’s hard to imagine it’s been fifteen years since the Internet, correction, the World Wide Web was created by Sir Tim Berners-Lee.

God knows how many millionaires it’s made, how many people it has helped and companies it has advanced. It’s made so many futures and broke so many pasts. So, we all have to sing today:

Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to you,
Happy birthday to the Internet
Happy birthday to you.

May you have many more (get-rich-quick schemes),
May you have many more (pirates),
May you have many more (lawsuits),
Happy birthday to….you………….

Yeah, you go boy (could the Internet be a girl?), ride your new car but remember to include an adult beside you (how about traditional media?) because it’s only a learners’ licence.
