History of the Internet
It all started in 1957 when USSR first launched Sputnik into space. In response, the USA created DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) to start work of becoming the leading nation in new science and technological discoveries.
Leonard Kleinrock at MIT wrote a paper called "Information Flow in Large Communication Nets" which communicated his theories and concept for packet switching the technology underpinning internet connections.
The first wide area computer network was created. A TX-2 Massachusetts computer to another computer based in California using a relatively low speed dial up telephone line.
The Arpanet is born. It was the first real network to run on packet switching technology. The network was wired together via 50Kbps circuits. First message sent across the network was supposed to be 'Login' but crashed when the letter 'G' was typed.
Network Control Protocol (NCP) is designed allowing connections and flow control between processes running on different computer hosts.
Email is introduced. Ray Tomlison what was to become the standard internet email across the format using the @ sign to seperate the usernames from the hosts.
Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol is designed (TCP/IP) a proposal was published to ling Arpa-like networks together into a so called "internetwork"
