The Circle of Life Was Inside This Baby the Whole Time

LOL at How The Internet Happened

The Life Online exhibit, which they would like us to shorten to LOL, is a new installation at the National Media Museum in Bradford. It takes visitors on a physical walk through the timeline of the invention of the internet, from the late 1960s to where we're all sat on our laptops and mobiles today, complaining it's still not fast enough.
