Birthplace of the Internet

Few cultural revolutions can trace their origins as precisely as the one that was born on October 29, 1969, in 3420 Boelter Hall at UCLA. The ripple effects of that moment are felt daily five decades later by nearly every human on the planet, and will likely be felt for centuries to come.
