Question from Nicole- How did the internet get started and who started it?
The internet began with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. The public was first introduced to the internet when a message was sent from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock's at UCLA after the second piece of network equipment was installed at Stanford Research Institute. This connection not only enabled the first transmission to be made, but is also considered to be the first internet backbone.
In 1982, the Internet protocol suite was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced. Commercial Internet Service Providers began to emerge in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Internet was commercialized in 1995.
