Internet has connected humanity like no other invention in the entire history of mankind. Thanks to internet, we can share so much in an instance. Knowledge has never been so easy to access. Internet, in all its evident chaos, remains an extremely important step forward for the whole world.
The history of the Internet begins with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. Initial concepts of packet networking originated in several computer science laboratories in the United States, Great Britain, and France. The US Department of Defense awarded contracts as early as the 1960s for packet network systems, including the development of the ARPANET (which would become the first network to use the Internet Protocol.) The first message was sent over the ARPANET from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock's laboratory at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to the second network node at Stanford Research Institute (SRI).
