THE INTERNET IN 1969 VIDEO – Do you ever think about the way the Internet was first envisioned? The history of the Internet began with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. Packet switched networks such as ARPANET, Mark I at NPL in the UK, CYCLADES, Merit Network, Tymnet, and Telenet, were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s using a variety of protocols. The ARPANET in particular led to the development of protocols for internetworking, where multiple separate networks could be joined together into a network of networks. In 1982 the Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced.
This short video shows how they might have envisioned the Internet in 1969, including how it would effect us in every day life and even at home. It’s pretty interesting to see how far technology has come and how quickly it still moves today. And check out the size of all that hardware!!!
We’re definitely fortunate enough to live in a time where printing, email, and browsing happens so fast and comes in the shape of smaller devices like tablets and smart phones. We can accomplish so much from an iPhone, Android phone, iPad, Windows tablet, etc. Technology moves fast.
Of course, with so many devices to manage, comes the need to support them all and have them all synced to your customization. We rely on the Internet every day. Sometimes it’s interesting to think about how that human condition all started.
