Where did Internet first develop?

Hi I have this question: Which country developed Internet first?


Answer #1

“I thought it was made here I thought the reson bill gates was so rich was because he invited apple comps. buttt apparently not”

Bill Gates is wealthy because of microsoft and its related products, namely windows(which he didnt even invent, he bought it and marketed it very successfully)

Answer #2

Imagine how different our world would be if CERN decided to make the web proprietary and sell licenses to make money off of it. Instead they gave everyone the right to use the protocols.

Many people today think of the Internet and the World Wide Web as being the same thing. As clawjaw points out the internet long predated the WWW. In the days before the WWW it was possible to do pretty much everything we do on the Internet today with a number of other applications. There was anonymous ftp, archie, veronica, gopher, WAIS, Webster and other programs. I remember after seeing Mosaic for the first time (the first really graphical web browser) one of my colleagues commented that it was cute but would never challenge gopher as a way to disseminate information in the Internet. The thing that the WWW did was to make everything much easier. Now anyone can surf the web instead of it being limited to engineers and computer scientists.

The Internet was originally developed by DARPA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, as a means to share information on defense research between involved universities and defense research facilities. Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usenet where scientists could question and answer each other. It was originally called ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency NETwork). The concept was developed starting in 1964, and the first messages passed were between UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute in 1969. Leonard Kleinrock of MIT had published the first paper on packet switching theory in 1961. Since networking computers was new to begin with, standards were being developed on the fly. Once the concept was proven, the organizations involved started to lay out some ground rules for standardization.

One of the most important was the communications protocol, TCP/IP, developed by Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn in 1974. Robert Metcalfe is credited with Ethernet which is the basic communication standard in networked computers.

Tim Berners-Lee perhaps specified technological applicability and / or linguistic construction of HTML while working at CERN, is chiefly credited for the ease of use and wide public adoption of the web. His website is: w3.org

Al Gore really did have a substantial part in the US legal framework and governmental issues related to the internet He never said he invented it.

There wasn’t just ONE person that invented the internet. The internet is just a way to view files and information that someone puts onto a server. The internet is just a way to access the information.

Although there’s a guy named Leonard Kleinrock who was the first person to write a paper on the idea of packet switching which is essential for internet to work. He wrote this idea in 1961.

And here are a couple more people that were essential to what we call internet today without these guys there wouldn’t be The Internet.

Larry G. Roberts created the first functioning long-distance computer networks in 1965 and designed the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET), the seed from which the modern Internet grew, in 1966.

Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf invented the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which moves data on the modern Internet, in 1972 and 1973. If any two people “invented the Internet,” it was Kahn and Cerf - but they have publicily stated that “no one person or group of people” invented the Internet.

Radia Perlman invented the spanning tree algorithm in the 1980s. Her spanning tree algorithm allows efficient bridging between separate networks. Without a good bridging solution, large-scale networks like the Internet would be impractical.

NOT Bill Gates. the Internet, I believe, was first invented by British scientists at CERN as a way of easily transerring information and messages between computers.

Answer #4

I thought it was made here & I thought the reson bill gates was so rich was because he invited apple comps. buttt apparently not

Answer #5

It was developed by government scientists and collages to communicate with each other arpanet look it up

Answer #6

and why was it developed?

Answer #7

When It was a launch time of Sputnik 1 satellite. It was the change to the world, mainly in USA.
