How we used the internet to tell the story of the internet

Our interactive people's history of the internet brings together your stories, alongside our own research and video interviews with key figures.

"Late in the summer we began a project to tell the story of the internet using the internet - that is, asking you what you considered important. It is published today as an interactive people's history from that first Arpanet connection in 1969 (between Charley Kline at UCLA and Bill Duvall at Stanford, both of whom were video interviewed by technology correspondent Bobbie Johnson) to the events of 2009: most significantly - I think - the use of YouTube and other social media to bring footage of the Iranian democracy protests to the outside world after the Ahamadinejad government had forced out the international press and TV."
