The Place Where You Can Do Everything!

By daddy’s girlJ


       Have you ever wondered who invented the Internet?  Or who controls it?  Well you are going to find out all the puzzling questions you have ever thought about the Internet.  I am going to tell you the history, how the Internet works, and what the Internet is.

History of the Internet

Who started the Internet?

       The USSR launches Sputnik, the first artificial earth satellite. In response, the United States forms the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) within the Department of Defense (DoD) to establish US lead in science and technology applicable to the military.

When did the Internet start being invented?

         This Internet Timeline begins in 1962, before the word ‘Internet’ is invented. The world’s 10,000 computers are primitive, although they cost hundreds of thousands of dollars. They have only a few thousand words of magnetic core memory, and programming them is far from easy.

When did the Internet stop being invented?

         According to Internet History Museum it stopped being invented in 1992.

Who invented the Internet?

         Development began on the protocol later to be called TCP/IP; it was developed by a group headed by Vinton Cerf from Stanford and Bob Kahn from DARPA. This new protocol was to allow diverse computer networks to interconnect and communicate with each other.


How the Internet Works

How does the Internet work?

         You type in a question or thing and it finds websites that have something to do with it.

What the Internet Is

Who controls the Internet?

         Currently the Internet Society, the group that controls the INTERNET, is trying to figure out new TCP/IP to be able to have billions of addresses, rather than the limited system of today. The problem that has arisen is that it is not known how both the old and the new addressing systems will be able to work at the same time during a transition period.


I hope you liked my report and know all about it. Bye!!!!
