Happy 20th Anniversary, Internet! We ought not to let pass unnoticed the... 20th anniversary of the Internet. The most logical date of origin of the Internet is January 1, 1983, when the ARPANET officially switched from the NCP protocol to TCP/IP.
Where were you two decades ago on this date? And does anyone actually have a "I Survived the TCP/IP Transition" t-shirt?
Also being discussed on /.
