The Victorian Internet, in physical form

An exhibition inspired by The Victorian Internet is currently on show at the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland. “The Once and Future Web” is also available online. It shows the similarities between the telegraph and the Internet and looks at the life-saving and medical uses of both technologies. A review of the exhibition has just been published by the British Medical Journal.
