Funny how that first map puts UCSB inland and UCLA to the East of it!

I enjoy these history lesson articles. Coincidentally I have been reading "Where Wizards Stay Up Late, The Origins Of The Internet" by Hafner and Lyon, which I have found just as enjoyable.

SOPA and PIPA = Internet Censorship = control = ZOMBIES!!

The above statement is probably not entirely true.

I understand SOPA is a big current issue, and that IF passed will be a significant change to the Internet as we know it. But if it doesn't it will just become another interesting footnote like all the similar failed bills before it.

To list it now as a key stage in the evolution of the net is a little premature. Save that spot for the bill that comes after it that does succeed.

Very enjoyable article though. Thank you.

I'm amazed that the internet is older than I am. Despite whatever "errors," thank you for the history lesson!

Spring chicken. Imagine being older than the internet.

This article is great, but it is full of spelling and other errors. Importantly, it's the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA), not "Privacy".
