the Development of the Internet

A friend recently sent me this interesting little history of the Internet. Thought some younger members might find it interesting.

History and maps that trace the development of the internet
40 maps that explain the internet

I did not know it went back that far. And here I was thinking I was in early when one of the social outcast, geek, white lab coat guys at my company said, "Come to my office, I have something cool to show you." He had what looked like a radar image of a developing hurricane from NOAA up on his Apple machine (a rare Apple user in the corporation). I think he was running Mosaic or maybe, Netscape. But it was the coolest thing ever and, of course, then I had to buy a computer.

That's a good overveiw, and Tim Lee is a very credible source. I got into it on about page 4 via Bell Labs who were tied in from very early on.
