Happy birthday to the internet

Yesterday (April 7th) was the 42nd “birthday” of the internet, the date marking the publication of the first “request for comments,” or RFC, documents that paved the way for the birth of the internet.

Here’s a link to a really interesting series of videos from Qwiki providing useful background to the internet, its development, scope, potential etc. that I came across this morning.

1969 was indeed a very memorable year in world history! Aside from the internet being ‘born’ we also witnessed the first manned moon landing and Woodstock!
