The Creation

It started with a series of memos written by J.C.R Licklider in August, 1962, whom had written about a “Galactic Network” concept. He imagined a globally interconnected set of computers through which everyone could quickly access data and programs from any site. While working at DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) he had convinced the importance of his networking concept to some of his successors. In 1966, Lawrence G. Roberts, a successor at DARPA went there to put together a computer network concept. H later named it ARPANET, which came to be the world’s first operational network, and the predecessor of the global internet. early-internet
