The root of all internet

ARPANET is quite the story. In simple terms, it is the foundation of the internet. That idea might seem crazy when you learn that the first host-to-host connection of ARPANET happened in October of 1969, between Stanford and UCLA.

Of course, that was only a hint of what the internet would become. But given the history that most of us have with computers and networks, it is a little amazing to think that was all happening over 50 years ago.

Our photo today is semi-related. This is a power supply for a HP Procurve switch. And there are also some Photoshop shenanigans being employed to enhance the pareidoila.

Pareidolia, for those that don’t know, is the psychological phenomenon that causes your brain to lend significance to random patterns. In this case, seeing that face. 🙂
