something interesting I found in an e-Commerce textbook: ‎"As was the case for other technologies, such as VCRs and subscription cable television, many of the early commercial users of Web technology were dealers in adult-themed entertainment material... These sites pioneered the online processing of credit card payment transactions and many different digital video technolog...ies that are now used by all types of businesses on the Web." - Schneider, 2009

Porn also went on to run for President of the Internets, and based on site hits, it won in a landslide.

"Ethernet cables are not coaxial, not even close."

They were in 76, and for twenty years to come. Bandwith of 10base2 ethernet was 10 Mbit/s and has been shared between all hosts that tapped the same wire. And if you goofed the impedance matching, everyone on the line lost connectivity.

Twisted pair cabling (as shown in the image) came up in the nineties, along with switched networks.

How much faster than things change?

The thing that struck me was that someone has apparently mixed up CREN and CERN, the latter being where Tim Berners-Lee was working when he proposed the WWW...

I`m disappointed that it makes no mention of X-25 or UUCP, or how they joined ARPANET to form the Internet.

So, .com, .org, .gov, .edu and .mil, was proposed in `84.
With the development on the interwebz I guess the next innovation will be .milf in 2011

What Al Gore was referring to was that he was partially responsible for the legislation that funded expanding ARPANET into the Internet. And, without that funding there would be no Internet as we know it. His statement was deliberately taken out of context by political enemies.

Only the future can tell that soon we`ll all just have special wires that connect from our cerebrum into a modem where we can just directly inject our personalities and lives and pointless relaying of information about taking a piss to the world. Then the intellect of the world will gap even larger between the smart and the utterly stupid.

I wish people would stop saying Al Gore said he invented the internet. He didn`t. What he did do is work on the committee which allowed internet access to become accessible across the US, offer incentives to companies for research to increase the bandwidth, and coin the term, "Information Superhighway".

Actually hansbo. Webcrawler or ask jeeves were the best search engines before google did theirs. And they both worked jut as well, apart from not allowing wildcard searches.

wow, they really did source Wikipedia three times? why not look at Wikipedia`s sources and maybe see the information in its full context. Just a crazy idea i had about sourcing your info from the source.

I remember using google for the first time. You could tell immediately, that it would change everything.

Before google, finding anything was a chore. There were lots of search engines, but they were worthless and couldn`t find anything. Google was... different. Oh man. I miss when internet was mysterious and cool.

There are some omissions. For one, I was on the "internet" in 1985 on a service called Q-Link through my modem attached to my Commodore, so there are some major things missing in that timeline during the 80`s.

"No Tim Burners-Lee again then. It`s another American Disney it up act of propaganda, like the USA won WWII singlehanded blah blah. YAWN."

Max_Normal, no one in America thinks we won WWII single handedly, just that you couldn`t have won it without us.

Pretty cool to think that 10 years ag the internet wasn`t half as big as it is now and that it barley took a year before YouTube was worth more than 1 billion.

What a shoddy piece of work. It mimics the internet nicely in the way it spreads false information. E.g., Tim Berners-Lee started his hypertext project at CERN (centre europeenne pour la recherche nucleaire) in 1989. I have been using the NCSA Mosaic browser on a VAX well before 1993 (which is the correct date for the X11 port) and had our university group`s first own web server up and running by 1992.

I am feeling old now ...

It`s weird to think that the internet has only popular for about 10 years, and what it will be like in the next 10 years. I`m glad to be part of this generation. (:

They sourced Wikipedia three times.
