Eighteen years ago today, a team of six Microsoft programmers led by Thomas Reardon unveiled the first version of Internet Explorer, one of the most widely used and hated web browsers of our time. Image courtesy of Stephanie Sicore via Flickr.
Ferociously independent DIY champion Ian MacKaye turned 50 today. FIFTY. That's pretty hardcore.
As the figurehead for hardcore heroes Minor Threat and post-hardcore prototype Fugazi, it's difficult to make an Argument against MacKaye's musical legacy. Strange to think he's half a century old now, isn't it?
Remember those 1,000-something $5 concerts Fugazi did? Well, you can watch 800 of them here. Consider it your Red Medicine for the day.
IMPORTANT QUESTION THOUGH: Does MacKaye still have the straight edge?
