A group of inspired researchers, computer scientists, and telecoms engineers – lead by some of the best and the brightest thinkers and doers in US public service, academia and industry – made the first connection of what would become the Internet. The potential value to humanity – people, education, civil society, and industry – of what they imagined had been partially imagined in science fiction but their work was practically motivated while pursuing ways to better share resources and, ultimately, enhance knowledge creation.
