A few years ago I read an interesting PDF about the Internet and similar technologies. I can't find it anymore. The gist of it was that unlike the Cliffs Notes history of the Internet—Arpanet => Internet => WorldWideWeb => Today—it's not implausible that other competing technologies could have expanded and merged to link together the globe. The paper didn't go into too much detail: it was about a dozen pages long. But it covered some other technologies like UUCPnet and France's Minitel. Can you find this paper?
