Happy Birthday, Internet!

On January 1, 1983, ARPANET switched over to TCP/IP, officially making it the Internet we know and love. Yesterday marked its 20th birthday. Here's a snip from that article by Internet pioneer, Vint Cerf:

January 1, 2003 marks the 20th anniversary of the deployment of the Internet. On that date in 1983, the sponsoring organization of the Internet, The US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), together with the operator of the Internet, the Defense Communications Agency (DCA), now the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA), declared that all users of the ARPANET (Internet's predecessor) had to switch from using the older Network Control Protocol (NCP) to the new Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP). The users of the Packet Radio and Packet Satellite networks were already using the Internet Protocols to communicate with selected hosts on the ARPANET but the 1983 Flag Day marked the moment that ALL ARPANET net hosts had to convert to the new protocols.

Thanks HardOCP.

Happy New Year!

Allow me to be the first to welcome you to 2003. I've got things kind of picked up after our New Year's Eve party. I'm running on adrenaline now. Go Wolverines!
