The thing I find most interesting about the history of the internet is how the internet has progressed in leaps and bounds since its birth in 1960’s with the first workable prototype of the Internet the creation of ARPANET.
When I was an youngster, we used to have a computer room in my house. You couldn’t be on the phone at the same time as the internet, we didn’t have laptops and the only time you went on the internet on you phone you quickly closed the application and turned off your phone to make sure your mum didn’t get charged a fortune for 3 seconds of slow internet. Nowa days, the data allowance on my phone is the cheapest part of my phone bill, my laptop automatically connects wirelessly to the internet and if I want to be out in the middle of a field on my laptop, I can connect my laptop to my mobile phone and use my 3G allowance to surf the web. The internet has come a huge way in just the decade that I have been using it, and that astonishes me. I am so excited for where the internet can go, and how it can improve the life of the people it reaches. I am an avid user of the internet. I am forever connected to the internet, whether that be on my laptop, or phone, or streaming shows on my tv. The internet engulfs my life and what interests me about the internet is how it is going to mould our life in the future.
