    Default How The Internet Began

    How the Internet started


    Well, you might have thought that you knew how Al Gore invented the internet, but here's the TRUE story ....



    In ancient Israel , it came to pass that a trader by the name of

    Abraham Com did take unto himself a young wife by the name of

    Dot. And Dot Com was a comely woman, broad of shoulder and long of

    leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com.



    And she said unto Abraham, her husband: "Why dost thou travel so

    far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without

    ever leaving thy tent?"



    And Abraham did look at her - as though she were several saddle

    bags short of a camel load, but simply said: "How, dear?"



    And Dot replied: "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in

    between to send messages saying what you have for sale, and they

    will reply telling you who hath the best price.



    And the sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by

    Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)."



    Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way

    with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success.



    Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever

    having to move from his tent.



    To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the

    drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the

    drummers knew. It was called Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS),

    and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures

    - Hebrew To The People (HTTP)



    But this success did arouse envy. A man named Maccabia did

    secrete himself inside Abraham's drum and began to siphon off some of

    Abraham's business. But he was soon discovered, arrested and

    prosecuted - for insider trading.



    And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the

    greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called

    Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS.



    And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and

    the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real

    riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother

    William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land.

    And indeed did insist on drums to be made that would work only

    with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks.



    And Dot did say: "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being

    taken over by others."



    And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel , or eBay as it

    came to be known. He said: "We need a name that reflects what we are."



    And Dot replied: "Young Ambitious Hebrew Owner Operators."

    "YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they

    named it YAHOO Dot Com.



    Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic

    Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate

    things around the countryside.



    It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating

    Everything (GOOGLE)



    And that is how it all began.
