These following websites have some sort of media that discusses the history of the world wide web and computers. The media includes movie clips, sounds clips, and pictures.

A history of computers with a video clip.
The first 2 websites include short ogy has comevideo clips. To view these video clips you need Real player. The first clip discusses the histnolory of the computer. It talks about IBM starting the PC, and is a real eye opener to how far technology has come. I selected this clip because ti has some awsome clips of some old computers. The difference in the look and size of the computers now is so different.
