So, I was born in 1971 but if I was born in the 1960s I would have soooo wanted to be part of this geeky project….

On Labor Day 1969, the first router was born. It connected UCLA and Stanford University and was amazingly fast at 50 kps – well….fast for back then anyway.

So by watching the video, we now know that the first router was the size of a refrigerator while most routers these days are about the size as a cordless telephone base….oh, how the times change. Arent you glad that you dont have to have something like this in your office? (Even tho the geek in me wishes I did have this piece of internet history in my home)

It amazes me how many people just dont understand how far we have truly come in the world of technology until they see something like this. So…watch!
