I have to admit, I'm a sucker for a cool infographic and this is no exception! I was chugging away in my career through all of this "interweb" development from the first days to the present and it's funny to take a look back at the history and get all nostalgic for the old days, which in reality were quite terrible. Thank you for sharing!

FYI - Your graphic has a typo: Under the 2006 - 2010 header it says, "Video continues it's rise..." Should say, "Video continues its rise..." Thanks for the fun walk down memory lane!
