A draft history of the internet http://hamishcampbell.com/index.php/2012/08/31/a-political-history-of-the-internet/
The ARPANET was a response to wanting to use DARPA computers at acedemic sites more efficiently by allowing users to log in remotely and share resources. It was not originally intended as a military command and control network.
Libertarian liberals didn't build the ARPANET, that would be libertarian conservatives at DARPA actually.
Good start, needs more work.
Its a part of the #OMN
