Happy 40th Birthday Internet
October 30th, 2009 by Troop110

On this date in 1969 a message was sent 400 miles between two California university computers, laying the groundwork for the Internet and for BSA110.com to exist.

Then, in 1980 Tim Berners-Lee developed the concept of hypertext which became hypertext markup language (HTML) that makes today’s World Wide Web work. The Internet didn’t become a household word until the 90s when Berners-Lee, a British physicist invented the Web, the first Web browser and the first Web server. After those inventions, service providers like America Online (AOL) connected millions of people for the first time.

Scouts will have a good laugh seeing some of the early video games and computers the troop adults grew up with by watching a three-minute National Geographic video on the topic HERE
