Leonard Kleinrock Describes Arpanet

Internet pioneer and UCLA computer science professor Leonard Kleinrock discusses the process of connecting the first host computer to the fledgling Internet, then known as the ARPANET, in September 1969, and sending the first host-to-host message a month later on October 29, 1969 between himself and Charlie Klein.  They typed in LOG and the remote machine would type in the “IN.” Unfortunately, on the “LO” made it through as in “Lo and Behold”–according to Kleinrock.
