UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science -- the birthplace of the Internet-- hosted a special forum commemorating the 35th Anniversary of the Internet.
In 1969, the first Internet message was sent from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock's laboratory at UCLA, ushering in a new method of global communications that forever changed the course of business, politics, entertainment, education, law and social interaction.
To celebrate this historic event, a special day-long forum took place on Friday, October 29, 2004 at UCLA's Northwest Campus Auditorium. Some of the Internet's early pioneers, as well as many of its rising stars took a closer look at how the Internet came to be what it is today, and what it will be like tomorrow.
Following a brief history of the Internet, four special sessions examined the many sides of the Internet:
