Backgrounder: The ARPANET After Twenty Years (Peter Denning, 1989)

Primary tabs

Backgrounders will be optional readings and interesting links posted to give our discussions more context.

This article provides a decent historical overview of ARPANET which, at the time of its writing, had just been opened to the public (and renamed the Internet).  Peter J. Denning, the author, talks about ARPANET's cold war origins and ends with speculation as to its future importance.   It should be noted that in 1989 "The Web" as we know it had just been proposed, and wouldn't be in popular use for another four years.
