Happy 40th Birthday to the Internet.

I found this and thought it should be mentioned.

LEORNARD Kleinrock never imagined Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube that day 40 years ago when his team gave birth to what is now taken for granted as the internet.

"We are constantly surprised by the applications that come along," Kleinrock told AFP as he and others at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) prepared to throw the internet a 40th birthday party on Thursday.

"It's a teenager now. It's learned some things but it has a long way to go. It's behaving erratically, but it's given enormous gratification to its parents and the community."

On 29 October 1969 Kleinrock led a team that got a computer at UCLA to "talk" to one at a research institute.

Kleinrock was driven by a certainty that computers were destined to speak to each other and that the resulting network should be as simple to use as telephones.

"I thought it would be computer to computer, not people to people," Kleinrock said in a nod to online social networking and content sharing that are hallmarks of the Internet Age.

Only a teenager they say and a long way to go what else could we do with the internet? LOL. I think we have proven to be a social network people to people as it is now.

Happy Birthday Internet. Let see what the next 40 years will bring.   :yes:

That would be as plausibly as page ads being removed from magazines or leaflet ads being removed from newspapers. It just aint gonna happen!


So. . . a 40-year-old teenager, huh? Well it has certainly seen more than its fair share of porn! :lol:
Downloading is an addiction I do not want to give up.
