The Webby Awards has released its list of the top 10 Internet moments of the decade, from 2000 to 2009.

The International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences, based in New York, has presented the Webby Awards since 1996 and recently announced the most influential moments on the web of the past decade.

See the slideshow below to see the list of the Webby Awards' 10 most influential Internet moments of the decade.

David-Michel Davies, the executive director of The Webby Awards, said in a statement:

The Internet is the story of the decade because it was the catalyst for change in not just every aspect of our everyday lives, but in everything from commerce and communication to politics and pop culture. [...] The recurring theme among all of the milestones on our list is the Internet's capacity to circumvent old systems and put more power into the hands of ordinary people
.
