Happy 46th Birthday, Internet!

46 years ago today was the first remote transmission between two computers using TCP/IP. You have come a long way baby!

In the glow of a green monochrome screen deep in the bowels of the computer science department at UCLA, a young graduate student (Charley Kline) picked up his phone and called the computer lab at Stanford. He is preparing to send the first message over an Internet connection. The men on either end of the phone are Charley Kline and Bill Duvall.

Thank you Leonard Kleinrock, Charley Kline and Bill Duvall, it was the start of a beautiful friendship.
