History of the InternetPosted: September 13, 2011
I found this short video to be confusing and boring, especially due to the lack of color on the screen. I felt like a lot of the terminology went over my head. I don’t think I was able to process all of the important events that were outlined to have helped shape the Internet. However, this video did make me realize how much I take the internet for granted, especially since I got an iPhone. I am constantly multitasking and finding information on the internet with ease; the idea of “batch processing” seems incredibly frustrating and time consuming to me. It is amazing how far the internet has come. From the video, I did understand the effect that history had on the formation of the Internet (ex: fear of nuclear bombs). It was fascinating to see that the foundations for our modern internet (scientific, military, and commercial approaches) are the same foundations that helped to create the Internet years ago.
