For Game Time Tuesday today, we played Song Poetry and Name that Tune!
Our Song Poetry lyrics were as follows…
“But there’s a purpose
Under the surface
And you don’t have to drown
Let me remind you
That love will find you
Let it lift you out”
That’s Beloved from Jordan Feliz!
Congratulations to Jennie of Howard!

And our Name that Tune song today was ‘Oh My Soul’ from Casting Crowns!
Congratulations to Madison of Mt. Vernon!

We also celebrated World Wide Web Day today, so in honor of that, here’s a few fun facts about the good old world wide web!

The Internet’s first website went online on Aug. 6, 1991.
Berners-Lee and his fellow CERN team members launched http://info.cern.ch with a landing page that only contained 153 words. It defined the World Wide Web (“W3”) as “a wide-area hypermedia information retrieval initiative aiming to give universal access to a large universe of documents” and contained 25 links to basic additional information about the pioneering initiative.

The internet is not the web and the web is not the internet.
The internet was a thing long before the web and the web wouldn’t exist without the internet. The internet, the roots of which can be traced as far back to the invention of the modem in 1958, is a massive infrastructure that bridges millions of computers throughout the globe. The World Wide Web is a vast system of interlinked hypertext documents accessed on the internet.

Billions of people surf the web.
 Of the world’s 7.1 billion people, an estimated 2.4 billion people go online today. That’s 37.7 percent of the world’s total population. About six out of seven people across the globe have internet access. Approximately 70 percent of internet users surf the web every day.

Americans rock the web the most. Users in the U.S. account for 78.6 percent of global web usage, trailed by Australia (67.6 percent), Europe (63.2 percent), Latin America/Caribbean (42.9 percent), Middle East (40.2 percent), Asia (25.7 percent) and Africa (15.6).  Surprisingly, some 24 nations remain completely offline.
