Today the internet makes 45 years since its invention on 29 October 1989. The first electronic message between two computers was sent on 29th October 1989.

Today many Internet lovers and societies are appreciating the importance of the Internet and some Internet societies have held community meetups and social media hashtags to discuss what they want the internet to be. Our own Internet Society of Uganda is holding a Twitter discussion.

You can share your love and wishes for the internet using hashtags like #InternetDay

Happy BirthDay Internet! May you live to be that thing I can’t live without! May you be free from surveillance!
