PSA: The History of the Internet

Most readers will know that the internet has been a transformative force in human society over the past decade or two. In one close-to-home example there is probably no chance that we could share our thoughts with readers in posts just like this without it. No other medium could provide the forum for an everyday common writer such as myself to share thoughts with such a disparate audience with such ease or with so little expense.

However, despite common acceptance of the power of the internet, fewer users understand just how it came into existence or how it works. We hate to spoil a surprise as much as the next person, but Al Gore had nothing to do with it. For a brief read on the real history of the internet, visit the Internet Society's website here.
