|I would like to read about the initial proposals, email exchanges, discussions, about why any specific technology or protocol was built, who all were involved - designer, funders, contributors, etc.
History, timeline, discussions, proposals - accepted & rejected, ideas - accepted & rejected, philosophy, restrictions.
In general I would like to read about all the technologies, but want to start with the internet and the TCP stack (protocols).|
