October 29, 2009 marks the 40th anniversary of the creation of the ARPANET, the precursor to the Internet. On that day, a small unknown laboratory at UCLA unleashed a force that has since spread to every corner of the globe, revolutionizing communications forever. Just two days before the actual anniversary, we will be looking back at the early days of the ARPANET and will explore what its future holds over the next 40 years.
For this first edition October 27 at 7:00 pm, we have the privilege of featuring Katie Hafner and Brewster Kahle and the show will be broadcast live on SF APPEAL.
"Tech Atlas SF" is a monthly LIVE WEB TV SHOW of 1hour. Passionate people come and debate around how the World Wide Web is changing our lives.
