We find ourselves “on the Internet.” Working, teaching, shopping, “keeping in touch” and learning through this “thing” we call the Internet. But what is this thing?
Melih Bigil created an animated eight minute video, History of the Internet, to describe some of the main highlights of development of the Internet.

Is it important for the “non-techie” to understand the history of the Internet? I believe that to a certain extent the answer is “yes”. It is part of being a digitally literate person in the 21st century. But that is part of a larger story!
Note: As a movie, “History of the Internet” is interesting. It is told through icons and voice-over completely. I think it works in this context. I wonder what others think?
