The 40th Anniversary of the Internet from Intel

Here is a terrific video production on the 40 years of the Internet, produced by Intel. While it exaggerates the relationship of the Internet to national defense, and gives a sense of the Internet following a progressive trajectory rather than being reinvented and reconfigured over the years through an ecology of choices by a growing array of actors*, it is a nice celebration of the anniversary.

  1. 40 Years! Can you believe it! Google is only 10 years old… Blogging is only 6 odd years old… The internet is still evolving every day… 5% of homes in the UK still use dialup!

    The internet is a 40 year old baby….
