"It is hard to imagine, but as recent as 1965, computer scientists were
uncertain how best to interconnect even two computers. The notion that within a
few decades the challenge would be how to interconnect millions of computers
around the globe was too farfetched to even contemplate. Yet by 1988 that is
precisely what was happening."

A fascinating history in the form of a hypertext.
