When I log on and see a new Google Doodle I can rarely resist clicking to find out what is the story behind the graphic.  And so it was today–the 79th anniversary of the drive-in movie. Imagine that!

June 6, 1933:

  • Hitler was on the rise,
  • In cities across the U.S. and Europe,people were waiting their turn on breadlines for perhaps their only meal that day,
  • And, according to Wikipedia, (can there then be any doubt?), “The first drive-in theater, created by Richard Hollingshead, opened outisde of Camden, New Jersey, on Crescent Boulevard in Pennsauken Township. At 8:30 pm, the first film ever shown at the Automobile Movie Theatre was Wife Beware.”

But Google presented the real news about June 6, 2012, in a very unobtrusive link below the Doodle.

Thinking I was going to learn something about the 79th anniversary, imagine my surprise when I saw this!  Today is the very quite shift from the Internet as we know it to the Internet of the future–IPv6–as “the father of the Internet” Vint Cerf explains here:
