A History of The Internet: From Concept To Napster and Facebook (Infographic)

Do you recall a day when the Internet was first referred to as the "Intergalactic Network?"  Perhaps you recall a little company called CompuServe?  Okay, you're dating yourself now, so be careful.  The sad truth is we recall CompuServe all too well and a few other milestones along the way in this interesting infographic sent over to us from MBA Online.  Ahh, those dial-up modems chirping away at you upon connecting with that BBS you so loved to frequent.  Or maybe you have fond memories of that blazing fast 14.4K modem from U.S. Robotics?  Don't let the kids hear you strolling down memory lane like this or you might find yourself labeled an esteemed member of the Geritol club or "old skool."  Regardless, it's interesting to see how far we've come since the days of Mosaic for web browsing and even the birth of such big internet monoliths as eBay.  Now we have Twitter and Facebook.  What's your take on what we should expect as the next "big idea?"
