Summary
In less than a decade, the Internet went from being a series of loosely connected networks used by universities and the military to the powerful commercial engine it is today. This book describes how many of the key innovations that made this possible came from entrepreneurs and iconoclasts who were outside the mainstream - and how the commercialisation of the internet was by no means a foregone conclusion, as Shane Greenstein traces its evolution from government ownership to privatisation to the commercial Internet we know today
