Gigglebit is Siliconrepublic’s daily dose of the funny and fantastic in science and tech, to help start your day on a lighter note.
Like any sector, technology has a serious side, and it is often issues within this serious side that make headlines or that organisations need to explore for their business. Malware! Data breaches! Cloud storage! Do I really need this software? Which candidate has the best IT skills for this job? And what the heck is fog computing?
With Gigglebit, we turn the spotlight on humorous and/or amazing content about science and tech, because sometimes the lighter side should be taken seriously, too.
It may be a cheap shot, but laughing at the Nineties’ idea of what the internet is sends us on a hilarious nostalgic trip.
In this amazingly cheesy video, one of the kids raises the questions: “What’s a web page? Something a duck walks on?” That’s right folks, ducks.
The kids even consider writing a threatening letter to former US president Bill Clinton ... pesky internet kids.
