The History of the Internet

Like everything in life, it's interesting to, every once in a while, check out the past and see where we've been and the path that we've taken so far.

And even though the Internet is not that old (compared to other events in History) it already has its own History. And there's so much we can learn from it just by going to the WayBack Machine.

The WayBack Machine is an Internet Archive that has been storing snapshots of the Internet throughout the years, for more than a decade now.
