One of the coolest parts of reading the first 365 RFCs is seeing the concept of sockets invented over time. They were informally specified and were being used for a year before their official definition in RFC-147. It's interesting to see what we now consider a fundamental networking resource evolve from "hey this seems like a good idea"


Reading in numerical order, that's an idea. 😋

I remember printing them out and reading them on the way to school and back. By the time, I think we were already up to four digits or so.
