  • This term came from  the IT Crowd TV show episode 'The Internet',  but it has some history, and can be seen on Twitter in reference to the organizations that decide on internet standards.

    There was once a reference to  'Ethernet elders' in Info World.

    https://books.google.ca/books?id=BjsEAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA46&dq=elders+internet

    March 14 1994 , Info World

    I don't think this is the actual root of this term. 


    E. of The Internet spotted in Internet Engineering Task Force document https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-elders-social-media-apology-00 - July 2018

    see also 'elder days' at the Jargon File. http://catb.org/jargon/html/E/elder-days.html   This version of Jargon File is from the late 90's.

    Version 2.1.1 had the first reference to 'elder'

    "1. To attach a removable storage volume to a machine.

       In elder days and on mainframes this verb was used almost

    exclusively of tapes; nowadays (especially under UNIX) it is more

    likely to refer to a disk volume"


    Version 2.8.2 had the first Lord Of the Rings based reference to elders.

    March 23 1991

    elder days: n. The heroic age of hackerdom (roughly, pre-1980); the

    era of the PDP-10, TECO, ITS, and the ARPANET. This

    term has been rather consciously adopted from J. R. R. Tolkien's

    fantasy epic `The Lord of the Rings'. Compare Iron Age;

    see also elvish.


    A google books search will find some instances of 'elders' in the 1990's referring to the groups that decide on internet and ethernet standards.
