The first internet connection was made fourty years ago

By Tim Quax on 29 oktober 2009

It has been exactly fourty years since the first connection over Arpanet has been made. On october the 29th, 1969, the connection was finally realised between the university of Los Angeles and Stanford.

Arpanet, a project of Arpa (an American defense research agency), was the beginning for the internet we know today.

Arpanet formed the base, and researched took it from there. Eventually DARPA (the original Arpa) developed the TCP/IP model, which has been developed to form the spine of the internet we know today. The internet didn't start to grow immensely until the world wide web was introduced, and the internet started to change into something the normal user could use. The 'WWW' was invented by Tim Berners-Lee in 1989.
