Updated internet history anyone?

I am looking for a short and good and updated article on the history of the internet with a focus on multimedia and media convergence. Anyone?

So far, the best option I have found is Asa Briggs and Peter Burke: A Social History of the Media: From Gutenberg to the Internet. The two last chapters are on convergence and multimedia.

Any better suggestions? (Norwegian/Swedish/Danish or English.)

Since this is a chapter of my MA thesis, I have spent a good amount of time trying to track something like that article down. The best I have been able to do is piece together a history via a number of articles that discuss different aspects.
