Transcript of History of the Internet

1969: Arpanet: Arpanet was the first real network to run on packet switching technology (new at the time). On the October 29, 1969, computers at Stanford and UCLA connected for the first time. In effect, they were the first hosts on what would one day become the Internet.
Designed as a computer version of the nuclear bomb shelter, Arpanet protected the flow of information between military installations by creating a network of geographically separated computers that could exchange information via a newly developed protocol. 1971: Email Email was first developed in 1971 by Ray Tomlinson, who also made the decision to use the "@" symbol to separate the user name from the computer name (which later on became the domain name)
*E-mail is still the main way of inter-person communication on the Internet today.
2003-2005 is the social age. This is when all the social sites are invented, such as Facebook, MySpace, and YouTube. 1998: Google! It revolutionized the way we search the internet. 2001: Wikipedia is launched one of the websites that paved the way for collective web content generation/social media. 1996 Microsoft enter
•0.5 Million WWW Sites.
•The WWW browser war begins, fought primarily between Netscape and Microsoft, has rushed in a new age in software development, whereby new releases are made quarterly with the help of Internet users eager to test upcoming (beta) versions.

They are trapped from the numerous opportunities outside as their focus is to stay on the internet. * People can send messages online instead of on paper. * Online shopping can save fuels so you don’t have to drive to stores. * Can learn about different cultures easily and faster than ever. * Cultural communication is very easy now because of the internet. * Marketing could offense or harm different cultures without the person’s knowledge. *Advertisement for political parties can be seen by millions. * Can bring stronger democracy and bring in different backgrounds. HISTORY OF THE INTERNET * These day employees can work from home using the internet therefore using less fossil fuels and energy and still get the work done. * People at work average 1 hour of internet surfing a day, this is a loss of money to the company. * Cultural homogenization * New can travel very fast because of the internet. * People’s lives can be saved because of the instant reports if there is a disaster. * It allows people to communicate and spread good things. * Credit card theft and identity theft, spamming, cyber bullying. * Porn and violent images damage kids' and adults' minds in modern days. * Wikileaks is an example of secrets that are not supposed to go out are out and it negatively impacts the governments and the people. *Cyber wars *Social networking, such as MSN, where people can communicate with other people freely. *Multiplayer gaming allows people to play and communicate with other players around the world and also with their friends. *Gambling sites *Porn sites *Cyber bullying By: Max and Jeremy Impacts Who was the Inventor of the Internet???? After looking through several sites, we concluded that the internet was not invented by ONE person. It was a group of people from different timelines that slowly put the pieces together, which eventually created the internet as we know and use today. So who was the group of people that invented the Internet? Well, let's look at the timetable up ahead and see what it tells us. Timeline of the Internet Websites Here are the websites that we used when we researched on our project:
* Welcome Fellow Classmates!!! Today, we are going to show you guys what the Internet is, what it does, what the impacts are, who invented it, and how it was created. What is the Internet??? The Internet is a global network of computers. Every computer that is connected to the Internet, cooperating with each other to exchange data using a common software standard, is considered a part of that network. This means even your home computer. Through telephone wires and satellite links, Internet users can share information in a variety of forms. What does the Internet Do??? To send email.
To view web sites.
To download files such as mp3 and images.
To chat with people live online.
To post messages on newsgroups and forums.
To play mulitplayer games online.
To watch movies and tv porgrams.
To chat and view on webcams.
All these activities can be done on the Internet but the basic goal of the internet is to connect world-wide and communicate with others. 1957 (Potential Origin and Beginning -- The History of the Internet) The USSR launches Sputnik, the first artificial earth satellite. In response, the United States forms the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) within the Department of Defense (DOD) to establish US lead in science and technology applicable to the military. 1982: The first emoticon 1983: Arpanet computers switch over to TCP/IP: Transmission control protocol/Internet protocol. On January 1st, every machine connected to ARPANET had to use TCP/IP. TCP/IP became the core Internet protocol and replaced NCP entirely. 1984: Domain Name System (DNS) The domain name system was important in that it made addresses on the Internet more human-friendly compared to its numerical IP address counterparts. DNS servers allowed Internet users to type in an easy-to-remember domain name and then converted it to the IP address automatically. 1988: IRC – Internet Relay Chat/ IM 1990: World Wide Web protocols finished • The code for the World Wide Web was written by Tim Berners-Lee, based on his proposal from the year before, along with the standards for HTML, HTTP, and URLs. World-Wide Web (WWW) was released by CERN; Tim Berners-Lee was the developer. He proposed WWW in 1989. 1991: MP3 becomes a standard Also, the MP3 file format was accepted as a standard in 1991. MP3 files, being highly compressed, later become a popular file format to share songs and entire albums via the internet. 1996: First web-based (webmail) service In 1996, HoTMaiL (the capitalized letters are an homage to HTML), the first webmail service, was launched. 1999: SETI@home project A giant supercomputer by harnessing the computing power of more than 3 million computers worldwide, using their processors. The program analyzes radio telescope data to look for signs of extraterrestrial intelligence. Conclusion So you see, the Internet has really changed our daily lives. From changing the way we communicate to each other, to the way we research. We have been more dependant on the Internet to meet our daily needs and it has both harmed us and benefited us. It took around half a century to create the Internet and it most certainly has unlocked many secrets as it changed the world and space entirely. Thank you for Listening to Our Presentation!!!!! We Hope You Learned Something New!
