Subject: Re: [Humanist] 33.355: 'Internet' anniversaries Hi Henry, Yes indeed, Irish society owes a lot to the foresight of Dennis Jennings. TechArchives have a testimony from Dennis, which discusses his time at the NSF - It also has the diagram of the NSFnet model that he presented to the National Science Board at the NSF in January 1985. https://techarchives.irish/how-the- internet-came-to-ireland-1987-97/dennis-jennings/ ----- Hi Willard, Yes please, I would greatly appreciate a copy of the proofs for your chapter. CURIA was a remarkable initiative for its time, being the first Irish website, and also the first Irish DH project on the web. My PhD thesis is looking at early Irish web histories, and aside from your chapter, and a chapter by Kenneth Murphy, "RTE Online" in Histories of Public Service Broadcasters on the Web, there is not a lot of academic literature which refers to early Irish web history - And if anyone has come across something, please let me know! We do, however, have some other resources of interest such as: David Malone's notes on "Early Irish Web Stuff", https://www.maths.tcd.ie/~dwmalone/early-web.html Niall Murphy's personal view on the History of the Irish Internet http://www.internethistory.ie/ TechArchives https://techarchives.irish/ have a number of testimonies which refer to the early Irish web, albeit in conjunction with the early Irish internet; but they are also trying to put a series of testimonies together for the early web; of interest will be a 90's history of Irish ISP's, which shaped the early Irish web.
