A substantive chronology of the different eras in Internet development, from the birth of the telephone and the first modem to the latest microchip refinement and the mouse.

Try to imagine the world without the Internet. Yet not long ago, hardly any of us knew it existed. With roots in the19th century, through various twists and turns, accidents, and leaps of faith, we are now able to sit at our computers and reach practically every other computer in the world.

* A substantive chronology is broken into chapters that focus on the different eras in Internet development, from the birth of the telephone to the latest microchip refinement; from the first modem to the innovation of the mouse

* Includes sidebars, special features, and numerous illustrations that highlight important material
