Birth of the Internet

Even this post has nothing do to with Cisco, Juniper or other great products, I strongly believe that has to do with the idea of “network”. I don’t know how many remember that on 29th of October 2009 we celebrate 40 years from the birth of Internet. I have to admit that I didn’t remember, but reading an article on CNN made it all clear.

From CNN’s webpage post one phrase remain in my mind: “On October 29 of that year, for perhaps the first time, a message was sent over the network that would eventually become the Web. Leonard Kleinrock, a professor of computer science at the University of California-Los Angeles, connected the school’s host computer to one at Stanford Research Institute, a former arm of Stanford University.”

I invite you to read CCN’s article and think for a second what Internet means and how much it helped for the global human development.
