Week 2 Blog

It felt right to discuss the birth of the Internet at our 90s week themed class. I particularly enjoyed the class’ discussion on defining the Internet and the Dot Com bust.

So what is the Internet?  How would you define it, if asked?  Not as easy as it seems, huh?  I was actually amazed at how difficult it was to define the Internet in a coherent sentence or two.

The course’s text book and professor’s lecture provided a wealth of information on the birth of the Internet. Certainly learned many things I never knew before.  For instance, the Internet was developed by our military.  I always thought Al Gore invented the Internet!?!?  (joke).
