Internet Overview

What is the Internet and where did it come from?

Cold War communication in the mid 1960’s raised concerns surrounding the need for a bombproof communications system. The interlinking of multiple computer systems like government "think tanks" and a few universities started. The "Internet" was an emergency military communications system operated by the Department of Defense's Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA). The whole operation was referred to as ARPANET.

In time, ARPANET computers were installed at every university in the United States that had defense related funding. Gradually, the Internet had gone from a military pipeline to a communications tool for scientists. As more scholars came online, the administration of the system transferred from ARPA to the National Science Foundation.

Years later, businesses began using the Internet and the administrative responsibilities were once again transferred and a communication system capable of transmitting images and text, "the Source" was established. The Internet was born.
