A little internet history

Where did the internet come from?

On the NewMediaMedicine blog, there is a really interesting 30 minute video on the development of the ARPAnet, the precursor to our modern internet. These guys who put the thing together talk about really what can be described as the philosophy of the internet, and speculate about the future of computers. Almost everything they said in 1972 has turned out to be right on the money, and sounds surprisingly like how people in computers speak today!

Also entertaining are the 70s clothes and graphics.
