July 28th, the 10,000th day of the Web

Party like it’s day 9,999
Tomorrow, July 28th, is the 10,000th day of the Web. We’re feeling pretty nostalgic about the past 10k days, so we’re going to be sharing some of our faves in Twitter tomorrow. Like, for example, Day 1,208, when the enchanting melody of dial-up became the song of our people.
For all the greatness it’s given us in the past 10,000 days, we think the Web deservers at least 10,000 thank-yous. Wish the Web a happy #10kdays by shouting your love from the digital rooftops.
