How many computers are connected to the Internet? What in the world is IP? Who owns the Internet? Who was the first to use the Internet? Well, I have the answer to all of those questions, so stick around.
This paragraph is about how many computers are connected to the Internet. Have you ever wondered how many computers are connected to the Internet? According to Jeff Tyson, the original Internet was connected to only four host computers but now there are tens of millions of computers that are connected to it.
This paragraph is about what IP is. What in the world is IP and what does it stand for? According to http://www.theshulers.com/whitepapers/internet_whitepaper/index.html, IP stands for Internet Protocol which is a special Internet address. Every computer that is connected to the Internet has a unique address of it's very own because the Internet is a global network of computers. IP is in a special order kind of like nnn.nnn.nnn.nnn. The nnn must be a number from 0 to 255. So now you know what IP is.
This paragraph is about who owns the Internet. Who owns the Internet? Jeff Tyson says that nobody owns the Internet, but that doesn't mean that it isn't monitored. The Internet is monitored by The Internet Society, a non-profit group established in 1992. They oversee how we use and interact with the Internet.
History of the Internet
This paragraph is about who used the Internet first. Have you ever wondered who was the first to ever use the Internet? Well, according to Walt Howe, the first to use the Internet were computer experts, engineers, scientists, and librarians. It was not all fun and games using it back then, though. The people who used the Internet had to learn how to use a very hard and complex way of using the Internet. There was no home or personal computers in the days way back when.
