The Internet Turns 50 Today

Relax in southern comfort on the east bank of the Mississippi. You're just around the corner from Beale Street and Sun Records. Watch the ducks, throw back a few and tell us what's on your mind.

The Internet Turns 50 Today

Post by mediatechnology » Tue Oct 29, 2019 7:05 am

The internet was born when the first Arpanet link was established between the University of California, Los Angeles and the Stanford Research Institute at 22:30 hours on October 29, 1969. UCLA professor Leonard Kleinrock and his student Charley Kline sent the first message to Bill Duval, a programmer at Stanford University. That first communication was the spark that ignited the growth of the internet and everything it has brought with it – email, sharing pictures on Facebook, buying books and toasters on Amazon, watching movies on Netflix, cat videos, mean-spirited memes and election-tampering bots. ... ssues.html

50 years since the first Arpanet message 'LO', but stretching it a bit to say the 'internet' turns 50 as TCP/IP wasn't going to come along for another 6 years? And of course packet switching had been demonstrated elsewhere by this time.
