History of the Internet

I have always enjoyed learning about history, so when I came across this video showing the history of the Internet I had to watch. I find it interesting how much of what we take for granted today appears to have been built because of fear. Fear of a missile gap, fear of a missile attack, fear of not being able to communicate. Now, it is fear of the Internet and how it can change business models and connect people with each other and with businesses. No longer are middle men needed to help promote and create a market, everyone can do it themselves. The invention of the printing press and the industrial revolution might have made books and knowledge mass produced, but the Internet has made everyone a publisher.
