Say "Happy Birthday" to the Internet

..
Quote:
Happy 40th birthday to the Internet!

Today, the 2nd of September, is the Internet's 40th Birthday! On this day, 40 years ago, in a test lab at the University of California, Los Angeles, two computers passed test data through a 15-foot gray cable - it was then called the ARPANET. One month later Stanford Research Institute had also joined. By the end of the year, UC Santa Barbar and the University of Utah had joined, thus creating the "internet".

The Web, as we know it was invented by English scientist Tim Berners-Lee in 1989, when he invented the "World Wide Web" or "WWW". The first web browser to become popular was called ViolaWWW, but was soon replaced by Mosaic in 1993, when the University of Illinois released version 1.0, which became wildly popular. Components of Mosaic still exist in Internet Explorer today.

And how should we call the internet we used before WWW? Using text-based Gopher to surf, needing to type over 100 characters only to write recipients email address, all this using 300 and 1200 baud modems. For me it was, still is, the origin of Internet.

So yes, Internet is 40, World Wide Web half of that age. Internet existed already before the WWW.
