Blip: Why do people use the internet? Kittens, says web inventor

Happy birthday, world wide web! You information superhighway, you bastion of comments and … kittens?

Yes, fuzzy baby felines are apparently one of the primary reasons people jump on the net, according to its inventor.

"What was one of the things you never though the internet would be used for, but has actually become one of the main reasons people use the internet?" asked a Redditor of Tim Berners-Lee, currently hosting an AMA.

"Kittens," was his dry and likely tongue-in-cheek response. Still, he’s probably not far off the mark.

More blips!

OK, we can’t give you kittens, but we can give you more blips.
