21st Anniversary of the Berlin Wall Takedown!

This day in NovBerlin Wall Falling Down November 9, 1989ember 1989 is the historic day that brings in the New World from the Old World. 44 Years of captivity behind this wall has finally ended, along with the end of the Cold War. Stores now can stay open as long as they want in East Germany. Markets are in chaos. Order is anything but! But it is a day that has been predestined!

Tim Berners-Lee First Web Browser 1989

At the same time an Oxford educated Englishman, Tim Berners-Lee gave us the first Internet Browser. This has also opened the Wall that has kept the majority of people out of the Computer market. Now it is the rare person in many communities to not have a computing device, and to be able to email, talk and otherwise take care of business, half a block away to several thousands of miles across the oceans.

      Hi bet365. I am fine. I am glad you like this post. I started the WWII website about two years ago with the story of WWII as told by my uncle in the letters he saved that he wrote to and from his family. I thought a blog about similar topics would complement it.

      I think Ronald Reagan’s comment about taking the Wall down was the highlight of his Presidency. And his Presidency is not one that I was always happy about, at least with the words he said here, he got something right!

      Leanne, this hasn’t happened to me. I tried in another browser, but I have a play button on top of the video, which requires one to click on it first before it starts. You might let me know what browser you are using.
