LIFESTYLE world wide web
The World Wide Web has indeed brought us many benefits, but there was a time when humans survived without the internet and its perks. So how did people carry out tasks like research information or paying their bills?
October 29 marks 49 years since the first ever message was sent on the internet. A UCLA student named Charley Kline tried to send the word "login," though only got through "lo" before the computer crashed. While "login" was actually sent later that same day, it remains that "lo" was the first message ever sent.
Since then, the internet has only become more complex. However it's important to remember how we survived without it. In honor of this anniversary, click through the gallery to see the things that people did before the internet existed.
