Happy 45th Birthday, Internet!

Das Internet wird heute 45 Jahre alt. Irgendwie..

The story of the first message on the internet is that of a happy accident. The UCLA computer connected to the computer at Stanford and the two teams were each on the phone together for the historic moment. UCLA researcher Bill Duvall typed an „L“ and they asked down the phone, „did you get the L.“ Yes, they got the L. He next typed the letter O. „Did you get the O?“ they asked. Stanford had gotten the O. Next he typed a G. „Did you get the G?“ Nope. the computer had crashed. They were trying to type LOGIN. They had only managed to type LO, leaving the very first message ever sent over the ARPANET as LO, as in lo and behold.
