How Did The Internet Get To Your Place

Regular readers, (yes both of you 🙂 ), will have noted that I don’t often embed content other than that which I have created myself. Occasionally along comes something that you just can’t make yourself and that writing a description and adding a link does not possible do justice. This is one of those situations so I have decided to simply embed the following YouTube movie, (apologies for those who see only a blank spot because said YouTube is blocked).

The movie;

“History of the internet” is an animated documentary explaining the inventions from time-sharing to filesharing, from Arpanet to Internet. The history is told using the PICOL icons on picol.org , which are available for download soon. On blog.picol.org you can get news about this project.

Voice-over by Steve Taylor
For more information on this movie click here or on the PICOL-Project site where you can download a pre-release of the icons.
