Google announces its timeline of memorable articles from its 20 years of Usenet archives.The Usenet, or commonly referred to as newsgroups, is similar to a giant messageboard stretched through many servers on the Internet with thousands of different groups and countless people posting on them. Some of the highlights from the timeline are:
  • First mention of Microsoft
  • First mention of Brittney Spears
  • First review of the IBM-PC
This is definitely an interesting page to visit and read.
