5. Webcam invention related interesting true story

We know every invention of technology world from any necessity. Webcam’s invention also from that necessity. Do you know few idle students of Cambridge University invented the Webcam first? Intention was to monitor the Coffee room. Let’s talk about that interesting story.

The Trojan Room coffee pot was the inspiration for the world’s first webcam. The coffee pot was located in the corridor just outside the so-called Trojan Room within the old Computer Laboratory of the University of Cambridge. The webcam was created to help people working in other parts of the building avoid pointless trips to the coffee room by providing, on the user’s desktop computer, a live 128×128 greyscale picture of the state of the coffee pot. Dr. Quentin Stafford-Fraser and Paul Jardetzky was the first inventor of Web Cam.


6. World’s First Web site

Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web in 1989 while working as a software engineer at CERN, the large particle physics laboratory near Geneva, Switzerland. He thought to connect different hyper link text with the whole world. His great invention is today’s giant Internet.

Info.cern.ch was the first website and domain in this world. It was first published 6th August, 1991. You can visit the website now (www.Info.cern.ch). They still keep the site as it is to keep the history alive. That’s so interesting and exciting as well as.

7. Very expensive domain

Easy and nice named domain is very popular to all. I personally love the name of Google. Because its easy to remember and easy to spell. That’s why easily spelled and easily remember domain name is very expensive. Those domain sell in very high price. Let’s see some very expensive domain name list.

Still now Insure.com is very expensive domain. It sold out with 16 million dollar. Secondly, sex.com is second expensive in this world. It sold out with 14 million dollar.


Many of  you may think why not Google.com or Yahoo.com. Because they are independent company but those domain I mentioned here are only a website. I hope everyone understood why the second one price is too high 🙂

Philip M. Parker is a professor of INSEAD business school. We know to write a book we need a book title, topics list, ISBN (International Standard Book Number), Cover page, Back cover and so many things. Most important thing is you need knowledge to write a book.

So far Mr. Philip M. Parker write almost 200000 books. He is the top most book writer in this world. He only write this number of books only for the computer and internet. This guy graduated in Math, Biology & Economics. This is really huge we think. What do you think?


10. Weight of Internet

We know internet is the hub of all information. Scientist done some interesting works to measure the weight of this information.

Information weight is 2.0 × 10-7 ounces. Do you think it’s weird? But believe me it’s the fact.

If we make it more simpler, 1 ounce = 28.3495 gram

I think this weight will be a piece of sand. So the weight of the Internet is the same as the weight of a piece of sand.

Lots of information shared with you. If you feel it’s interesting then I will think my research is fruitful. Finally I wish to share with you another interesting true story.

Do you know around the world one third (1/3) people searching for nude or sexual picture or video of girls? 80% pictures of the internet are on the nude girls. Can’t you believe? This number explore by the Annual General Meeting 2013 of Google.com. Still can’t believe? Please visit www.google.com/trends/ and I believe you can research there.


That’s all for today. Happy Internet Browsing. Take care.
