The day it all started

Today in 1969 the first ever link was established between one computer and another. It could be argued that, from an historical perspective, this was the single most important event in the development of the internet.

It was, in a sense, the moment when that first human footprint appeared on the Moon. The moment when that first ape lifted up a bone to use in warfare.

On this day in history a computer first began talking to another computer. It’s anyone’s guess, more than half a century later, where the conversation will go next.
