The birth of the internet

Om Malik has pointed out the NSF Birth of the Internet site that is absolutely frikkin’ awesome.  I have only just started going through the history which is extremely well done in video and multimedia and I am mesmerized.  The scary thing is remembering first-hand most of the things covered.  I still haven’t hit the part where Al Gore invented the Internet, though.  You must check this out.  BTW, Om, I will not likely get much done this afternoon, thanks buddy.  The coolest part for me so far is that in the 60’s you could get a computer with a whopping 8,192 BYTES of memory for just $1,000 per month.
