Discovering Hallowed Ground

A few days back, my Brother and I are running through Rosslyn when we turn the corner and see this sign:

The sign states that from 1970 to 1975 the ARPANET project was developed at this location. ARPANET is essentially the first version of the Internet.

For a computer programmer who's life is basically made possible by the Internet this is sacred ground.

Just imagining the code that got written, the design decisions that were made and no doubt the deadlines that were missed in that spot practically gives me the chills.
