Description of the versions archived here
This history has been compiled by Harri K. Salminen originally for
the Heureka science center. The
original standalone version was designed for a 1024x768 screen with a
specific Netscape version in a kiosk mode and enhanced with embedded
2Mbit/s MPEG-1 clips that required a special plugin. This version is
also available as an alternative. The web version of the history has
still images instead of embedded videoclips with links to the MPEG-1
video clips for easier playback. There's only nine video clips and you
can learn the main historical points without them too. Most of the
clips are from the Internet, Web What's Next conference held at CERN
which is also available in separately in full length form.
The history does have special emphasis on the Finnish University and Research network
which is maintained by the writer's employer Center for Scientific Computing. No
warranty whatsoever, please check at original sources if necessary.
