The history of the internet

Clock Gears of History

Many of us were born or raised in a world with the internet. For some, it has been a part of their lives for as long as they can remember and the idea of living and doing our daily activities without the connectivity that it presents is almost obscene. We’re a spoiled society.

The internet itself has a much longer history than most realize.

It was goes back much further to the time when the space program was hitting stride and computers were still huge machines in warehouses. My, how times have changed.
