Internet History: Now we are downloading movies in minutes. But the internet is how it all works. Now the whole world is booming with internet. Internet is another name for revolution in technology driven world.
We never imagined Internet The world of technology is running at speed. Getting ready to cross the speed of 178TB per second. Once upon a time, we used to celebrate when a photo was loaded on our phone. As such, we are now downloading movies within minutes. But the internet is how it all works. Now the whole world is booming with internet. Internet is another name for revolution in technology driven world. Internet has made it easy for the world to advance rapidly in every field.
Today.. we use internet for almost everything. For many people it is impossible to imagine life without the Internet. There is a long history of 60-70 years behind the invention of internet.
What is internet?
The term Internet refers to an interconnected network (inter meaning interconnected and net meaning network). It means- a network of networks ranging from local to global in scope, including private, public, academic, business, government networks.
This is the history of invention.
The Internet began in the United States 50 years ago as a government weapon in the Cold War. Over the years, scientists and researchers have used it to communicate with each other and share data. It is impossible to credit the invention of the Internet to a single person. The Internet is the work of dozens of pioneering scientists, programmers, and engineers, each developing new features and technologies. It eventually became the “Information Superhighway” we know today.
Long before the technology existed to actually build the Internet.. many scientists foresaw the existence of worldwide information networks. Nikola Tesla toyed with the idea of a “world wireless system” in the early 1900s. Visionary thinkers such as Paul Otlet and Vannevar Bush mechanized.
The first workable prototype of the Internet came with the creation of ARPAnet, or the Advanced Research Projects Agency network, in the late 1960s. Originally funded by the US Department of Defense. ARPANET used packet switching to communicate multiple computers on a single network.
Successfully for the first time..
Where is the first message from?
“Node-to-node” communication from one computer to another. The message—“login”—is short, simple. But it crashed the burgeoning ARPA network anyway. The Stanford computer received only the first two letters of the note.
By the end of 1969, only four computers were connected to the ARPAnet. But the network gradually developed in the 1970s. In 1971 it added the University of Hawaii Alohanet. Two years later it added networks at University College London, Royal Radar Establishment in Norway.
Thus, after a long revolution, the Internet has reached where it is today. Modern human life would be quite impossible without it.
