Submission + - 21yrs of the Internet in New Zealand celebrated (downtothewire.co.nz)

An anonymous reader writes: New Zealand is celebrating 21 years since it became the first country in Asia Pacific to hook up to the global Internet with an online party — hosted by actress and singer Madeleine Sami with video interviews and contributions from around the world. The site claims that NZ's first internet link was 50% funded by NASA as part of a USA push for the TCP/IP standard in the region to influence Japan's adoption.
