BIRTHPLACE OF THE INTERNET

Divider

 

Few cultural revolutions can trace their origins as precisely as the one that was given birth on October 29, 1969. On that warm evening in Los Angeles, UCLA Professor Len Kleinrock and his team sent the first message over a network of computers that would grow to what we know today as the internet, changing forever the way people communicate and share information. The repercussions 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.

On October 29, 2019, the world’s leading internet experts – from business, entertainment, government and media – will gather on the UCLA campus to honor the significance of that moment 50 years ago, take stock of the impact the internet has had on every facet of our world and project where we go from here.
