The birth of the internet

Got a few minutes to spare? Check out America’s National Science Foundation’s nifty site, documenting the birth of the internet.

It goes from the first time two computers communicated cross-country in 1962, through the arrival of the personal computer in the ’80s to future possibilities such as quantum computing. Just shows how a handful of people with some good ideas can inspire others and result in something amazing.
