What Internet Topics are Nonprofits Most Interested In?

By on Sep 6, 2011


internet for nonprofitsThe internet has been around for a long time now (sort of).

Back in the early 1960s is when things really started to take shape.

What we know as the internet today is actually the by-product of a few visionary people who saw great potential in allowing computers to share information for research and development in scientific and military fields.

“Hypertext” came about in 1989. Mosaic, the first graphical browser, hit the scene in 1993. Crazy to think that the first web browser came out less than 20 years ago.

I doubt that anyone had Facebook, Google, Twitter or YouTube on their mind when the early internet was being formed.
