Man Connects to the Internet with a 1964 Modem

(Video Link)

In 1989, YouTube user phreakmonkey acquired a 1964 Livermore Data Systems Model A Acoustic Coupler Modem. It was one of the first modems ever made. Watch him use it to load Wikipedia on his laptop! The video begins with some historical and technical information. You can skip ahead to about five minutes into the video to see him login.

Well, Egbert...That's about how long data transmission took in those days with those modems. Now we can send memes around the planet in seconds.
