The History of the Internet According to Itself: A Synthesis of Online Internet Histories Available at the Turn of the Century

by Steven E. Opfer, http://members.cox.net/opfer/Internet.htm

... Gregory R. Gromov's "History of the Internet and WWW" uses so many techniques of presentation that are unique to the World Wide Web, that he's included negative commentary on his site that remarks how difficult it is to use in the traditional sense. Perhaps he did this because many of those comments seem to unconsciously reflect an intention on his part: to present the history of the Internet on the Internet in a uniquely World Wide Web fashion where the presentation is not read in a traditional manner, but is browsed for bits and pieces of information that ultimately form a whole both textually and graphically. 

As a result of these sources operating from a predominately technological perspective, most of them are conspicuously absent of interpretation of the Internet in terms of its significance and impact, except in terms of its size (i.e.--extensiveness of the actual networking) and its capabilities (i.e.--computer networking protocols in use, speed of the networks, etc.). If, however, one approaches these online histories of the Internet with this perspective in mind, then the sources can function in an autobiographical sense. 

In fact, a significant portion of the sources are autobiographical...written by those who worked to establish the networks and those who created the programs that helped them function. Most of the other sources, while not autobiographical in nature, are written by computer networking professionals. Consequently, their online histories also function in an autobiographical sense as professional testimony from the computer networking industry regarding that industry's most phenomenal accomplishment...the Internet.
