I thought Matthew Broderick created the internet, back when he was a coo-coo guy. Then Gary and Wyatt really pushed the technology forward.

Timera, Chimera - I answer to both Incidentally, I looked up the internet's birthday. 4/30/93... 27 years. Roughly 38% of the US population (those 27 & under) will not know what the world was like without the internet. Trippy.
Or talking on the phone all night, hoping somebody had 3-way, screaming at your sister to quit listening in to your most important conversations.

Joe Pesci in a new NoES.

The birth date of the internet is just when they standardized the communication methods.

"January 1, 1983 is considered the official birthday of the Internet. Prior to this, the various computer networks did not have a standard way to communicate with each other. A new communications protocol was established called Transfer Control Protocol/Internetwork Protocol (TCP/IP). This allowed different kinds of computers on different networks to "talk" to each other. ARPANET and the Defense Data Network officially changed to the TCP/IP standard on January 1, 1983, hence the birth of the Internet. All networks could now be connected by a universal language."
