What are some of your first memories of the internet?  Over 20 years ago, I woke up on MLK day  wanting to read the "I have a dream" speech.  When I found it immediately I had such a feeling come over me.  I read it with tears in my eyes.  It was then that I knew that the internet was going to change everything about our knowledge.  Nowadays that is obvious ancient; kids just assume it has always been so, but back then, not so much.  Would you believe that back then, internet purists did not want money polluting the free flow of information that was the internet?  They made the .com (commercial) domain as a concession, a way of keeping the money-centric interests away from the pure free flow of knowledge on the internet.  Nowadays, lots of folks don't know there is any other domain outside of .com.
