Abstract:

The Internet was invented during the Cold War and launched in 1969. Yet it wasn't made for the public. In fact, it was developed for the army to communicate quickly and secretly so that no spies could intercept and no bombs could disrupt the sharing of information. It was nothing like what we know today. This program takes a look at the history of the Internet, the 1972 introduction of electronic mail, and the launch of the World Wide Web. Nobody was paying attention to Tim Berners-Lee and his pet idea, even though he had a radical new way for scientists to share data by linking documents to one another over the Internet. Berners-Lee took his invention to the people: with a website. He brought us the Internet we know today, with its seemingly unlimited potential - from research and communication to mass protests in the street. So what will the future bring us - and how will Web 3.0 change us?
