The Birth of the Internet: How ARPANET Transformed the World
โ˜• – ๐Ÿ›๏ธ – โœ… – In the late 1960s, the United States Department of Defense started funding a project to create a decentralized communication system; this project became known as ARPANET. ARPANET’s goal was to connect computers across the country to allow for information sharing and communication between researchers and scientists; it was essentially the prototype for the internet as we know it today. On October 29, 1969, the first successful message transmission occurred between two computers connected by ARPANET; one at the University of California, Los Angeles, and the other at the Stanford Research Institute. One of the most significant contributions of ARPANET was the development of the Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocol, or TCP/IP, which allowed different computer networks to communicate with each other; this laid the foundation for the modern Internet By the 1980s, the internet was being used by more and more people; however, it wasn’t until the World Wide Web was introduced in the early 1990s that the internet really exploded in popularity. Today, the internet is an essential part of modern life; it connects people around the world, allows for instant communication, and has transformed the way we share and consume information. ARPANET may have been just an experimental project, but its development of the internet has had a profound impact on society and changed the world in ways that were unimaginable just a few decades ago.
