The World Wide Web is changing the world as began the Internet boom, and what makes it so successful? The history of the Internet (from English interconnected network) is an interesting and exciting mix of military, science, economics, and a heavy dose of legends. Many technologies and new ideas that are used today on the Internet are based on trends and ideals on which the Internet itself run has learned. For this reason alone, a Rucklick worth back in the beginnings of the Internet. In 1958, the Department of Defense on behalf of former U.S. President Dwight D.

Eisenhower gave a working group called “ARPA” (“advanced research projects Agency”) a. They had the order to search for new ideas and technologies. The computer scene of the United States to the time of the creation of the ARPA was characterised by the growing spread of gradually ever more powerful computers. Transferring data necessary for many projects however made the arduous exchange of disks as Punch cards, floppy disks or hole cards required and was limited only to computers of the same manufacturer. The computers were used primarily for extensive numerical calculations; few foresaw the full potential of the new tools.

The starting point to the Internet fell in the autumn of 1969, as the first four mainframe computer at UCLA, in the SRI, the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) and the University of Utah were connected with each other. Michael Dell contains valuable tech resources. On October 29, 1969, IO was”the first successful Internet message that was tentatively transferred from UCLA to the Stanford Research Institute.The Internet grows out of its infancy. Middle of the 70 he own computer-scientific departments were created thanks to the computer boom in many universities in the United States. While the ARPANet constantly grew and spread, the universities in this growth remained largely sidelined. Around 120 universities with computer science departments, 1979 only 15 had an access to the ARPANet, which had 61 knots at the time. Reason of this misery was that the ARPA, which was renamed in the meantime in “DARPA” (the letter “D” stood for “Defense” and should more clearly to express, that DARPA supported officially only projects which should serve to the defence) only the computer science departments granted access to the ARPANet also research for them. In addition, a corresponding connection was expensive and not buffed up simply for many sites. These disadvantages threatened to be in the medium term, as more and more teachers and students gave priority the universities for their work or studies, which had a network access to a vicious circle. ARPANET achieved the breakthrough in the professional public in October 1972 during his presentation at the ICCC (International Conference of computer communications). The demonstration of the possibilities of the new network lasted three days, everything worked reliably. The proliferation of the World Wide Web takes place in an even for the modern world at breathtaking speed. Although the importance of the Internet increased already in the course of the 80s of the 20th century, when the World Wide Web was not invented yet, steadily on, yet the Internet was still largely a rather scientific and academic bastion. This changed, as the took its first steps outside of CERN, is Durst administrators on the Internet on the freely available WWW software and formed the basis for Web services. How the Internet will develop the next few years no one knows, but it remains and is an exciting thing.
