History of the Internet: 1969 – 2012 [Infographic]

AVG, the antivirus and anti-spyware security software company have created an infographic focusing on the major viruses and major steps the Internet has taken to arrive to where it is today. Most of us, especially kids these days take the internet for granted. I mean, I have a fit if my internet is down, God help Virgin Media when my broadband goes down, I turn into the devil.

There’s not a day goes by that I’m not tapping away on the internet, watching something on YouTube, tweeting about whatever or Facebooking my friends about whatever crap I had seen that day that they had to hear about. Apart from myself and my social friends [all my online girls and guy friends], my family aren’t that bothered about the internet but most of them don’t realise that emailing involves the internet.

This infographic brings us to a new level of awareness as it addresses the progression of the Internet. It is important that we do not treat it as an assumed luxury; however, it is incredibly difficult not to.
