Ep. 127: Are the internet and WWW the same thing? (spoiler alert: no)
01/04/2019 by IVM Podcasts
Recently, the internet celebrated its 30th birthday! Or wait, was it the world wide web? Wait. What’s the difference? Is there a difference? Are Vincent Cerf & Tim Berners-Lee the same person? What on earth is TCP/IP? Ok, ok, be calm. Our trio attempts to help you answer all these questions and more, taking you on a cyber-history tour. And well… There are jokes. Some very bad ones. Sorry in advance. PS: In the episode, we talk about an ad in the early 80s which talked about commercial email. It’s hilarious now, and definitely worth a watch https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b1XsBny6IQk. Who knows which technologies will become super-standard tomorrow which we talk about like this, now?
