  • Pretty cool - here is wiki of what/how this started

    From Wikipedia,
    ARPANET logical map.
    The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), was the world's first operational packet switching network and the core network of a set that came to compose the global Internet.

    • @nickmbb Thanks for the info. I first got on the 'net' in the '80s (I think) using Delphi. It took the text only messages about 2 hours to get from Texas to South Africa. The msgs came with a full routing header. Before that only the government and universities had access and the old timers really resented their new neighbors. Bunch of rude SOBs. Still remember the day AOL started with 6 mil new users. I bet the old guys really were PO'd. LOL

      BTW,Your avatar is gonna give me nightmare More..

  • There's a video from Xerox Park of a computer with a mouse and live video conferencing from about the same time. I don't know where it is but I pay homage to what we take for granted.

      Yeah it's amazing how fast technology has advanced. Kids today take technology for granted. The older generations like my parents are scared of it. And I'm in awe of it.

  • No Battlefield 3 for them! :P


    TBH I think the internet reached its zenith 4 or 5 years ago, and it's now in decline. Compare now to 4 or 5 years ago, and the internet is not much more than a glorified ATM that has killed the high street independents and stifled the sharing of ideas and knowledge. It's made us apathetic to the outside world.

    • @dcmfox I do. The difference between now and 5 years ago is huge. No one really wants to put forward ideas anymore because they're afraid that someone will rob them of it, or they'll fail to make money from it because someone beat them to it. The difference now between say, opensource and public domain software, and the willingness of people to share the same stuff a few years ago has way decreased. A good example is the genealogy site that used to publish all its data free, but even the data th More..

    • @moanranger I think you're right. We certainly have grown an insensitivity to a major part of it or a major boredom.
