1985 was a happening year.  Mikhail Gorbachev became leader of the Soviet Union,  Michael Jackson and his friends recorded “We Are the World“,  and Wrestlemania made its debut in Madison Square Garden.

But, 1985 was also a go-go year for geekdom.

Network World has published their fourth annual compilation of the current year’s most notable technology-related 25th anniversaries. The list  includes:

  • Microsoft’s release of Windows 1.0,
  • Registration of the first dot-com domain names,
  • the founding of AOL,  and
  • the debut of the Commodore Amiga 1000 personal computer.

I am sure we will see these and other notables, revisited over the year, but here they are today, neatly assembled, by Network World, for your perusal.
