IMDB Celebrates 25th Anniversary

VentureBeat has an overview of the Internet Movie Database (IMDB), a site that doesn’t get nearly enough love. “The year 2015 heralded a number of notable Internet milestones — the humble .com domain name reached 30 years of age, while both eBay and Amazon reached the grand old age of 20. That the Internet Movie Database, a gargantuan film and TV show encyclopedia better known as IMDb, began 25 years ago as a pre-Web hobby project and is now one of the top 50 most visited websites on the Internet is a notable achievement.” I was worried when IMDB was acquired by Amazon, but the site has not turned into a giant Amazon-fest like I was afraid of.
