Anniversary of Internet Rules

In the NYT: How the Internet Got its Rules. Forty years ago. It should be noted that this is about the Internet, not the Web, which took another twenty years to emerge. I used the Darpanet outgrowth of the Internet in the 70s to test remote systems. Then it seemed like a rather clunky government thing I learned about in a day-long training at the Pentagon. No idea that it would become a commercial institution. The Web, much later, brought it to the public.
