Re: The Internet: 30 years

Thanks for the post, as I'm sure you are aware the Internet predates TCP/IP but the transition to TCP was an important milestone.

The Internet has become so intertwined in everyday activity I think many folks forget, or are not aware, just how recent it is.

The other significant milestones are: ARPAnet 1969, Email 1971, transition to public Internet 1992, and the creation of the world wide web in 1989.

Indeed - it's why I laugh when I hear plans by Iran and other entities to create "their own" Internet.

Two other notables to your list:
Publication of the first Ethernet standard: 1980 (later becoming IEEE 802.3)
Deployment of the DNS: 1985

While Berners-Lee deserves credit for developing HTTP, none of the Internet as we know it today would be possible without Ethernet, TCP/IP, and DNS.
