Twenty-five years ago today, the GIF (Graphic Interchange Format) was born. It was developed by Steve Wilhite of Compuserve. It immediately led to the production of animated GIFs, and without animated GIFs, there might not be an IHC as you know it.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE GIF! Really, we couldn’t imagine our lives without this wonderful creation. Could you imagine an internet without Nyan Cat? Didn’t think so!
