    Here is a video explanation of the differences between the internet and the web. It includes a brief history of the internet and the foundation of the Web. This video highlights the information we learned in class and shows images to explain the differences between the two.

The Internet's Save-the-Date: A Tiny Item in a UCLA Student Newspaper - 1 views

  •  
    An item from UCLA's school newspaper from 1969 reporting that "A computer facility here will become the first station in a nation-wide network which, for the first time, will link together computers of different makes and using different machine languages."

  •  
    Nii Quaynor, Africa's "Father of the Internet" is responsible for establishing the continents internet capabilities. Quaynor, the first African to be on the board of ICANN, was recently inducted into the Internet Hall of Fame.

    Natasha, Quaynor would be a terrific person to research for your presentation and final project. Very interesting, and I had never heard of him before.

Twenty years of a free, open web - Cern - 0 views

  •  
    Can't resist sharing this -- found it from Stephanie's "Oldest website on the Internet" link. Great short history of the web. "http://first-website.web.cern.ch" Note that it links to the "first" website at http://info.cern.ch/hypertext/WWW/TheProject.html , which is not the same as the "oldest" one that Stephanie linked to -- I think the one Stephanie posted was a demonstration site, but not a "real" site, so I agree that it's older. :)

The Oldest Webpage Currently On The Internet - 2 views

  •  
    As the title says, this is the oldest site online. It uses hypertext and uses links within the text to browse information. It is a very basic, black and white site that really shows how far we have come since then.
  •  
    That is great, Stephanie! ibiblio.org is one of my favorite sites -- it's run by the library and information school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and it has a fair amount of tech history. It's similar in some ways to archive.org. I'm curious: how did you find it?
  •  
    I actually found it through a BBC article a few months back.

    The site I posted is not the original but is a copy of the original that Tim Berners-Lee kept.

File:Arpanet 1974.svg - Wikimedia Commons - 1 views

  •  
    I've added a new avatar for our course Diigo group. It's based on a 1974 map of ARPAnet, the first "network of networks," and thus the precursor of today's Internet. I got it from Wikimedia Commons, which is a great source for all kinds of media that you're allowed to reproduce on the Internet.

History of the Internet - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  •  
    Wikipedia page about the History of the Internet that I showed in class. Note that the first Internet connection (really, the first ARPANET connection) was made between UCLA and Stanford -- most early work on the Internet was done at universities and was funded by government grants. It was only after the launch of the Web in the early 90s that businesses began devoting resources to the Internet and the Web.

Help and FAQ - W3C - 0 views

  •  
     The World Wide Web Consortium's definition of the difference between the Web and the Internet is understandably technical. It annoys me that there's a typo in which "TCP/IP" is misspelled "TPC/IP". Way to confuse people.

As We May Think - 0 views

  •  
    An article often cited as "inventing" the web, or at least the idea of it. Vannevar Bush worked in information intelligence during the Second World War, and his work in that field led him to conceive of a better way of finding and managing information. I don't know that the web has really solved that, though!

History of the Internet - YouTube - 0 views

  •  
    This animated video is British, and that affects some of its perspective (Internet history books will tell you more about the American side), but it's particularly good for showing the structure of the Internet.
