History of the Internet ReactionPosted: September 14, 2011
I would agree with many of the people who thought the video was a little hard to follow and fast paced. I did have to watch it a second and third time in order to absorb more of the information. I learned some new information and it did help solidify what we had gone over in lecture. I liked it for this purpose. I didn’t realize that the idea of the internet had been around as long as it had. It makes sense that the space race caused a technology race as well. It is strange to think that the internet has not always been around. Fifty years is longer than I thought, but still a short period of time. I wonder what we will be doing with the internet in another 50 years? The internet has become something that I use multiple times a day. When I went up north over the summer before I had a smart phone and was without the internet for a week it was very difficult. I wanted to check my e-mail, see what my friends had been up to via facebook, and watch videos. Now that I have the internet at my finger tips with my smart phone I never want to be without it. It is great to be able to look something up on google insead of arguing or wondering and finding restaurants in you area, and so on. The internet is useful and although the history of the internet is not what the majority of people care about it is still interesting to learn.
