Video Response

I didn't know much about the beginning of computers and the Internet. I always assumed that the Internet and web were the same thing- completely interchangeable. The most interesting thing that I learned is that Internet has been around much longer than the World Wide Web and that it was only after the invention of the Netscape browser that the Web actually seriously took off.The picture is of an IBM 360/67 mainframe-powered CAD system at Fairchildin 1967. I just find it amusing to look at such old computers. They were almost just glorified calculartors. It really shows you how far technology has progressed.
