Dr. Larry Smarr of the National Center for Supercomputing Applications (NCSA) / University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign) (UIUC) talks about the history of the Internet. This the raw footage of an interview I did in 1997 at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. Dr. Smarr talks about the history of high performance computing and how high performance computing led to the formation of the NSFNet. Larry also talks about how the development of software to access supercomputers set the stage for the development of NCSA Mosaic - the first web browser which was available on Unix, Macintosh and Windows - and is seen as many as the beginning of the consumer-driven web/internet. This is unedited footage - hence the time code in the lower left. At some point I will do a bit of editing and put up a more polished video of Dr. Smarr.
