Origins Of The Internet

I really like that episode of the Simpsons when they are discovering a crime from Homer’s past when he was a child. Don’t get me wrong, I like the whole series (newer episodes not so much), but I really like the ones with flashbacks. In that episode, there is one joke that I remembered the most. Young Homer is walking with his friends (young Lenny and young Carl), when at some point one of them asks others about the internet. He later explains that he is not talking about something that will change the history of civilization. He is talking about inner net in bathing shorts. It’s not a really funny joke, but at least it gave me and my friends name for that silly net. Although this episode is a flashback to eighties, if we want to talk about origins of the internet, we must go to sixties. Why sixties, you will see now. The first thing that was written about something that can relate to...
