40 Years of Internet Life!

And I was there at the beginning… but, hey, I AM the Computer Curmudgeon!

40 Years of the Internet!

“The concept of an Internet free world now seems unimaginable and to a certain degree, frightening. You may be surprised to know that LOLCats and Rick Rolls weren’t on the minds of two California universities when they began tests 40 years ago, successfully sending data between two computers in 1969. These were the humble beginnings of ARPANET…what is now, the Internet. What better time to recap on the last 40 years and provide a brief history of how a technology that has changed our lives, came to be. Before you begin reading however, if you’d like a more visual representation, you may want to sit back and watch this wonderful video that will take you through the decades to today.”

So… enjoy your Internet… and celebrate the access we have!
