Short Bytes: The Internaut’s Day is celebrated on the anniversary date of the World Wide Web which was invented by Sir Tim Berners-Lee. This year, the WWW has completed 25 years of being accessible for public use and even common people have become an internaut.
This computer is, in fact, the world’s first web server. “DO NOT POWER IT DOWN!!” – the label reads.
Who is an Internaut?
An Internaut is a person who knows how to design and access the internet. This involves finding information on various websites, blogs and web servers using search engines. Basically, you’re more of an Internaut if you have more technical knowledge about the internet. Like, if you know about the domain name system, URLs, how the search engines work, etc. It would be great if you can contribute as a designer of the internet.
Initially, the members of the IETF were called the Internauts, but with time, the horizon of the term expanded for common folks also. This is because more and more people have learned to use the internet and develop websites.
So, you’re an internaut as you can open websites, download files, and also know some technical stuff about the internet.
Happy Internaut’s Day
