happy birthday, dear internet

Today marks an important anniversary for the Internet: 20 years ago, the ARPANET (predecessor of the Internet) switched over to the TCP/IP network protocol standard.

Not a very glamorous event, to be sure, but the switch helped make it possible for the Internet to support the vast amount of servers and connections it hosts today.

Wired has a story about the anniversary.
