Here are some useful links about the history of social software:

1. Christopher Allen. Life with alacrity: Tracing the evolution of
social software. October 2004.

2. Randy Bush. Fidonet: technology, tools, and history. Commun. ACM,
36(8):31–35, 1993. ISSN 0001-0782
DOI: http://doi.acm.org/10.1145/163381.163383

3. Tim O’Reilly. What is Web 2.0: Design Patterns and Business Models
for the Next Generation of Software. Communications & Strategies, No.
1, p. 17, First Quarter 2007.

4. Marc A. Smith. Invisible Crowds in Cyberspace: Mapping the Social
Structure of the Usenet. 1999

Strictly speaking, resources listed above are about another topic than
the history of Internet that the original poster asked about. Yet, it
would be interesting to learn what sources you use for a "history of
social software / social web".
