It all started 40 years ago today, when a couple of computers were connected by a long gray cable in order to pass some data. Â The experiment was funded by the Advanced Projects Research Agency (ARPA) and the project was called the ARPANET. Â By the end of the year, four sites were connected. Â Today it’s hundreds of millions of computers and we call it the Internet.
Funny, I emailed Nat Geo on the 25th birthday, suggesting they do some kind of piece, even a map, but they were SOOO not interested back in the day.Â Now National Geographic has a story and some video.
Wikipedia has a nice timeline for the ARPANET.
