History of the Internet

I thought that this video was interesting and an effective way of learning about early major developments of the internet. I think the most interesting part of the video was the fact that different organizations were innovating the concept of networking around the world simultaneously. The idea that commercial, military, and scientific research would all contribute to various aspects of the range and scope of networking capabilities is interesting. This development is similar to the development of earlier tools of mass communication like radio.

The other part of the video I found interesting was when they said that “in that time, knowledge was only transferred by people.” I don’t think this is completely true (books, etc.) but it definitely revolutionized the way that information is disseminated and also changed how people communicate with each other.
