Happy birthday, Kim Jong-Un! The new North Korean leader’s birthday, his first as Supreme Leader of North Korea, was celebrated by the country’s propaganda machine thanks to a documentary that aired on state television. The video reveals him riding a horse, hanging at an amusement park, and  … most importantly, suggesting way back in 2009 that he’d be willing to wage war with South Korea and the U.S. if they shot down a North Korean rocket. In other words, bro knows a thing or two about threats.

Today is a significant day in the history of the Internet. On 6 August 1991, exactly twenty years ago, the World Wide Web became publicly available. Its creator, the now internationally known Tim Berners-Lee, posted a short summary of the project on the alt.hypertext newsgroup and gave birth to a new technology which would fundamentally change the world as we knew it. The World Wide Web has its foundation in work that Berners-Lee did in the 1980s at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. He had been looking for a way for physicists to share information around the world without all using the same types of hardware and software. This culminated in his 1989 paper proposing ‘A large hypertext database with typed links’. (via 20 years ago today, the World Wide Web was born - TNW Insider)

Thanks Tim, for changing the world. Meant a lot to us.

We’d like to see the gift receipt, please: Centering around a critique of the unemployment rate in Chicago, this ad (“Obama Isn’t Working”) was released the day before President Obama visited his hometown on Wednesday. As Obama will be celebrating his 50th birthday on Thursday, could this be a “present” from Team Romney? source
