25 Innovations That Shaped the 'Net
25 innovations that shaped the Internet.
It's all in there: Google, Amazon, Yahoo and eBay (not to mention parent company AOL). Newcomers like YouTube, MySpace and bloggers are all represented, as are the really important things we all take for granted these days, like e-mail, graphics and instant messaging.
Number one on the list: the World Wide Web. (If you're thinking to yourself, "But the Internet and World Wide Web are the same thing," you should read this.) Interestingly, spam, spyware, gambling and porn also made the list.
Not on the list? Crappy, overpriced, over-hyped Super Bowl ads.
