Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) is created
Found a way that computers can talk to each other in case of
computers at Stanford and UCLA connected for the first time
The first hosts on what would one day
become the Internet.
An Arpanet network was established
Network between Harvard, MIT, and BBN (the company that created the
"interface message processor" computers used to connect to the network) in 1970 was created.
Email was firt developed
Developed by Ray Tomlinson, who also made the decision to use the "@" symbol to separate
the username from the computer name (which later on became the domain name)
The beginning of TCP/IP-
A proposal was published to link Arpa-like networks together into a so-called "inter-network",
which would have no central control and would work around a transmission control protocol (which eventually became TCP/IP).
The earliest form of multiplayer games was debuted.
The precursor to World of Warcraft and Second Life was
developed in 1979, and was called MUD (short for MultiUser Dungeon). MUDs were entirely text-based virtual worlds, combiningelements of role-playing games, interactive, fiction, and online chat.
The first emoticon :-)
The first emoticon was used While many people credit Kevin MacKenzie with the invention of
the emoticon in 1979, it was Scott Fahlman in 1982 who proposed using :-) after a joke, rather than the original -) proposed byMacKenzie.
The domain name system was created
The first Domain Name Servers (DNS) was created. The domain name system
was important in that it made addresses on the Internet more human-friendly compared to its numerical IP address counterparts.DNS servers allowed Internet users to type in an easy-to-remember domain name and then converted it to the IP addressautomatically.
World Wide Web protocols finished
The code for the World Wide Web was written by Tim Berners-Lee, based on hisproposal from the year before, along with the standards for HTML, HTTP, and URLs.
First web page created 1991
brought some major innovations to the world of the Internet. The first web page was created
and, much like the first email explained what email was, its purpose was to explain what the World Wide Web was.
The first Personal Computer Modem is Invented
The modem was invented by Dennis Hayes and Dale Heatherington,and was introduced and initially sold to computer hobbyists.
