Seed magazine has posted an excerpt from my new book about DARPA in honor of today’s anniversary of the first connection on the Internet.
No, no, it wasn’t Al Gore who created the Internet. It was the Advanced Research Projects Agency, today known as DARPA. Way back in 1969, a couple of researchers at UCLA sent the first message between networked computers of disparate types. It was part of a project called the ARPANet, which formed the basis of the modern Internet.
