On the evening of October 29, 1969 the first data travelled between two nodes of the ARPANET, a key ancestor of the Internet. Even more important, this was one of the first big trials of a then-radical idea: Networking computers to each other. The men who symbolically turned the key on the connected world we know today were two young programmers, Charley Kline at UCLA and Bill Duvall at SRI in Northern California, using special equipment made by BBN in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
The development of the ARPANET, which had no commercial application at the time, underscores the power of coordinated basic research and the importance of that research to our society. In the 1960s, computers were not interconnected and most were not even interactive. A few research groups were looking at the potential of networked computing and how distributed systems might be used as information repositories and collaboration tools, but they were hampered by a huge obstacle: they lacked a network to weave their projects together.

Can you remember a time without the Internet? And how about all of the changes that have occurred in the short 44 years since it was born.

Internet safety for kids is a topic getting much attention because children are being exposed to the Internet at a younger and younger age. IUP Communications Media professor Erick Lauber and his student production team at IUPs Digital Media Institute recently produced this video on Internet safety for kids for the Indiana Area School District. It is currently used as part of the in-school training for students in kindergarten through third grade. For this video, Lauber received the Broadcast Education Associations Award of Excellence in the Educational and Instructional Video category.

A short video on internet safety and how to be safe online. I made this for school originally but people wanted me to upload it. This video covers safety on Social Networking sites, such as Facebook, Chatrooms, such as Omegle and how to avoid getting viruses. I do not own the music.
