The internet has come a long way, in the beginning it was just the internet that allowed people to exchange some simple text messages with each other, then some pictures, then the so called multimedia era, where internet sites would be able to show users some video and audio. I still remember that magical era, but it required some professional skills. Nowadays, webmasters are much happier, it only takes 3 minutes to install a wordpress, and then with some mouse clicks, you can install and set up the best wordpress audio plugins in 5 minutes 🙂
