IMDb is 19

By Deane Barker on October 17, 2009

IMDb Turns 19. Yes, 19. Older Than The Web Browser. Neat.

IMDb was born on October 17, 1990 as a series of Unix shell scripts to let users search the USENET group, rec.arts.movies. It wasn’t called IMDb yet (that came four years later), but it was the beginning of being able to search for movie information on the Internet.
