History of the internet

Posted in Broadcasting and Media by Adam Westbrook on January 7, 2009

I’m amazed mainstream broadcasters haven’t  developed a documentary looking at the history of the internet – it is afterall the most important tool since, I dunno, electricity probably.

Until they do, there’s a few decent shorts online – including this one I just discovered on Vimeo.

Could do with a bit more humour, but the graphics are nice and I learnt the idea of networking computers goes back to 1957, not the 1970s as I always thought.

Check it out!
