Wie entstand das Internet?

Steven Johnson schrieb einen sehr guten Artikel darüber wie das Internet entstand und sich entwickelte. Falls unsere Kinder fragen, empfiehlt er diese Antwort:

That should be the story we tell our kids when they ask who invented the Internet. Yes, we should tell them about the long-view government spending that paid the initial salaries, and the entrepreneurs who figured out a way to make the new medium commercially viable. But we shouldn’t bury the lead. The Internet was built, first and foremost, by another network, this one made up not of servers but of human minds: open, decentralized, peer.
