Internet History

Are you interested in knowing how we got from point A to point B as far as the underlying networking that is the Internet came to be? If so then check out Hobbes' Internet Timeline and see not only the technology but some of the business artifacts of this most important communications system. Included are such things as this drawing of the what the Internet looked like in 1969; three different types of computers on four major university campuses. Thirty-five years later, IBM is the only one still in business.

Heard on Boston Legal this evening

First they came for the Communists
but I was not a Communist so I did not speak out.

Then they came for the Socialists and the Trade Unionists
but I was not one of them, so I did not speak out.

Then they came for the Jews
but I was not Jewish so I did not speak out.

And when they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out for me.
