Internet History Program

Today seven billion of us live, work, and play online. Companies and governments are making decisions that will shape the flow of information for generations to come. Yet few know how we got here, or what we might learn from earlier systems. The Internet History Program tells those stories.

From MP3 to broken dreams of a “world brain,” the Internet History Program explores our connected world through events, publications, and a comprehensive series of physical and online exhibits. The program adds to the CHM’s leading collection of networking and mobile materials to carry those stories forward to new generations.

Launched in 2009, the program grew out of the original Web History Project (1996) and Center (2005).
