Welsh architectural practice Hyde + Hyde Architects transformed an unused quarry into a residential area where they built a unique home for a photographer on the edge of Brecon National Park in Pontypridd, Wales. To avoid touching the walls of the quarry, Hyde + Hyde came up with the innovative solution of elevating the building off the ground, creating a distinctive house that intrudes on the surrounding landscape as little as possible.

On March 12, the World Wide Web turns 25.

It’s come a long way since then. In 1995, just 14% of U.S. adults used the internet. 42% had never even heard of the internet, and an additional 21% were vague on the concept—”it has something to do with computers, right?”

Now: 87% of adults use the internet. 81% have a computer, 90% have a cell phone, and 46% say it would be very hard to give up the internet.

We’ve got a new report out today that looks at 15+ years of data showing the rapid growth/overall impact of the internet, in honor of the upcoming 25th anniversary of the web.

Could you imagine your life without the internet? What do you think it’d be like?

Ok, so I am almost three months older than the internet… Weird.
