Here’s a brief history of the Internet, including important dates, people, projects, sites, and other information that should give you at least a partial picture of what this thing we call the Internet really is, and where it came from.
Fun history lesson for us nerdy types. Growing up with my Dad being a net pioneer gave me a lot of early exposure. Reading through the history of the Internet is a little bit like listening to oldies in music - you get a little picture of where you were and what you were doing at the time. And for those whippersnappers among us, this is good stuff to know for you to flex your techie chops.
