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.

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.
