404 Day: 4 April

404 Day - the fourth of April

Yes! The dreaded “404 – Page Not Found” error actually has a day dedicated to it. And what better than 4th of the fourth month of the year – 4th of April. The 404 day shouldn’t be about the fragility of the web or about “getting lost”. I think the day is a celebration of the weirdness, wackiness and the ever-changing nature of the global network that we all love.

You see, that’s the innate character of the World Wide Web – it is never static. By the time you’ve read this page, the web would have changed many times over – pages, documents, files would have been added, deleted and modified. The 404 error results from the constant flux the web is in.
