Just 25 years ago, on November 17, the Netherlands became the second country, after the US of A, on the internet.
94% of people own a computer in the Netherlands, and the Amsterdam Internet Exchange (AMS-IX) registered in October over 512,000 terabyte of data. (Two years before it was just 300,000 terabyte).
Earlier today my Dad and I talked about using a computer as back-office support. At the time I was against it, a few years later we bought our first computer which still worked with floppy drives and DOS, a black screen and green font. And look at us now… we can’t live without them anymore.
