    On this day October 29th 1969
    a man by the name of Professor Kleinrock
    invented the internet in the sunny state of California at
    UCLA. We all owe this man, a lot. To say the least!

    There will be a celebration on USTREAM, You're On. Free LIVE VIDEO Streaming, Online Broadcasts. Create webcasts, video chat, stream videos on the Internet. Live streaming videos, TV shows
    today with Professor Kleinrock in attendance, This guy is one smart
    cookie, and he will be sharing his thoughts on his creation.
    Also in attendance will be Duran Duran (lol) This is the guy,
    that was the fist to sell music on the net.

    Along with many other pioneers. And new wavers!

    I bet if you watch you will learn something new!

    So tune into this one!

    FEED YOUR BRAIN.


    Cheers.

    Hell yeah! LCD, much better than LSD, because it has the word crystal in it.

    I invented it in 1933, then I got cryogenically frozen as I knew the world wasn't ready for the internet. Seriously, womens ankles used to make guys jizz in their pants - the internet would have destroyed the world... anyway when I thawed out in 2003, still a young man, my invention had been stolen... my own fault for not locking the box it was in (got distracted thinking id left the radio on). My next invention will change the world again, so I'm not too bothered.

    In deed, we owe the Internet today to Professor Kleinrock. It was because of his innovative and revolutionizing ideas that we have the most powerful means of communication known to man today. With the Internet, making correspondence for whatever purposes has become very easy, fast, and convenient over the past years. :usa:

    Kleinrock pretty much based all of his experiments on someone elses experiment. He did not really "discover" internet.

    Agreed.

    God I wish I could have been there!
