The internet at sort-of-40. How did we get here? The Guardian wants your input

The internet is sort-of-40 this year. Not in the sense of a Hollywood actor who is in reality much older but prefers to act vague, however. In the sense that if you set the October 1969 networking of US research universities through Arpanet as the start point then it is a significant birthday.To mark this, we want to tell the internet’s story. This is not the first time this has been done and will not be the last, but we want to tell the story of the internet using the internet – that is, the people who use it.
