internet’s founding fathers

By July 9, 2010Church

My first experience with what would become the Internet was in the early 1990’s.  My first ISP (Internet service provider) was Net something — I can’t actually remember.  I used FIDO net to communicate with other users and didn’t have a “graphical” web experience until signing up with AOL in 1992 or 1993.  My first modem was a 2400 baud and I can remember the excitement I felt each time I upgraded to “faster” speeds (4800, 9600, 15400!).

So, it is with great interest and nostalgia that I pass along this article: “The 10 Founding Fathers of the Internet.”

The truly geeky and nerdy among us may recognize 7 or 8 of the 10; if you recognize all 10, you’re the winner!
