Invention of Internet

A single person did not make the Internet that we know and utilize today. The following is a posting of different people who have helped add to and add to the Internet.

The thought

The beginning thought of the Internet is credited to Leonard Kleinrock after he distributed his first paper entitled “Data Flow in Large Communication Nets” on May 31, 1961.

In 1962, J.C.R. Licklider turned into the first Director of IPTO and gave his vision of a galactic network. Additionally, with thoughts from Licklider and Kleinrock, Robert Taylor helped make the thought of the system that later got to be ARPANET.

Beginning creation

The Internet as we know it today first initially begun being created in the late 1960’s.

In the late spring of 1968, the Network Working Group (NWG) held its initially meeting, led by Elmer Shapiro, at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI). Different participants included Steve Carr, Steve Crocker, Jeff Rulifson, and Ron Stoughton. In the meeting, the gathering talked about illuminating issues identified with getting hosts to speak with one another.

In December 1968, Elmer Shapiro with SRI discharged a report “A Study of Computer Network Design Parameters.” Based on this work and prior work done by Paul Baran, Thomas Marill and others, Lawrence Roberts and Barry Wessler made the Interface Message Processor (IMP) determinations. Jolt Beranek and Newman, Inc. (BBN) was later awarded the contract to design and build the IMP subnetwork.
