  How The Internet Began...

It really got started in the early 60's... ARPA, the Advanced Research Projects Agency (part of the US Department of Defense) was given the brief to develop a decentralized network of military computers. The Agency sponsored research projects in the private sector and at top universities across the United States... Taking part in the project, MIT and the System Development Corporation set-up telecommunication between two "time-sharing" computers in 1965... Originally developed by the RAND Corporation, "packet-switching" technology was introduced to the project in the late 60's... In 1969, ARPANET was online, linking computers at UCLA, Stanford Research Institute, Utah University and the University of California (map of 1969 network)... By the end of 1971, several universities and research facilities had computers connected via ARPANET, including: Harvard, Stanford, MIT, RAND and NASA's Ames Research Center... The first e-mail program and FTP (File Transfer Protocol) were developed soon after. And for a long time, e-mail was the "killer application" of The Internet

The World Wide Web was still a couple of decades away...
