'A Brief History of the Future: the origins of the Internet' by John
Naughton has just been published by Weidenfeld & Nicolson. It's the
first book which seeks to cover the history of the Internet all the
way from pre-ARPANET days to the explosion of the World Wide Web and
the Microsoft anti-trust trial. It also covers the history of Unix,
the pre-history of the Web, the origins and rise of Usenet and Fidonet
and the evolution and significance of the Open Source movement. The
