The Internet’s Baby Pictures
Saw this a couple of days ago and forgot to post it until just now. From Gizmodo:
The image above shows the log entry of the first meaningful connection between two computer nodes. It happened on October 29, 1969. However, the very first heart beat, the first actual connection in which bits were exchanged between two hosts happened 40 years ago today.
Happy (belated) 40th birthday, internet. Hopefully by the time you’re 50, Hallmark will make a card for that.
