At first when i started "The Awakening Internet" I was dreading having to read all of it because it didn't capture my interest from the beginning. Although as I kept reading it drew me in. I found it very interesting and informing to read about how the internet started and what it started as, along with how it has grown. While reading I found it very surprising to learn that the idea of the Internet was started around 1965. After having read this I have now realized that the creation of the internet was a much longer and more difficult process than I originally imagined. Rome wasn't built in a day, great books weren't written in a day, and the internet definitely was not created in a day.
