History of InternetPosted: September 13, 2011
Yes, as the video says, we are taking all these for granted. But it is now so embedded in our daily life, 24/7 now every second we check our i-phone or blackberry blinking. We don’t even realize that Internet is some sort of service getting provided or newly invented technology. It seems to be always there.
The video begins with today’s using emails, sharing ideas, and making phone calls over the Internet. Internet is more than just a technology, it’s existing world within our world. It assists our daily lives and connects our interpersonal relationships. It provides or transmits abundant information. This video only touches upon the technological birth of the Internet. I think it would be interesting to see how people digested the idea of Internet or having the Internet. So now after watching the video, I want to see History of the Idea Internet.
If commercial, military and scientific interests are the foundation of modern Internet, what is the nourishment of modern Internet? What are some significant driving forces of development of Internet? Definitely not military interests, but commercial interests still being deeply involved. Also, by saying ‘modern Internet,’ will there be ‘post -modern’ internet?
The animations have two human figures sending emails and sharing ideas. But knowing the development and boom of social media after 2009, I question if the director of this video would put more man figures in the beginning: multiple people sending messages to one another, sharing photos within a group over the Internet.
Well those are my questions and thoughts on that video clip….
p.s. To be honest, the video was a bit counfusing…..
*since the video is mainly focusing on the birth of Internet…here comes a Gurgle baby.
