I have always wondered how the internet came into being. How such phenomenal invention came into conception and became the cream of the crop at the current generation. As far as it is turned out to be, I have learned considerable things that I ought to express.
It started in 1957 when there was a problem at batch processing and manual programming. There was also a problem with the release of the German Satellite Sputnik I that became a catalyst for America’s DARPA- Defence Advance Research Project Agency (a terminology I just learned about) to make its move to secure technological advancement. They conceived a large scale computer network named ARPANET. It is a collective collaboration of 3 major sectors namely : RAND Corp.(U.S Military Network), NPC (National Physics Lab in England), and CYCLADS (Scientific Network in France) which later become the foundations of modern internet. It is ran by an IMP (Interface Message Processor) and has 2 network working groups namely NCP (Network Control Protocol) and TCP (Transmission Control Protocol). After many happenings, it evolved and on February 28, 1990 ARPANET was shut down but the internet was up and cunning.
The internet is indefinitely a vital tool that assists us on a daily basis. Knowing how it came into being makes us aware of its relevance and capabilities today and the coming days.
