OK gents.

Lets not start another civil war here. I doubt anger is the issue here, just perspectives. Lets keep the eggs sunny side up and I'll have my grits sugared (wtf are grits anyway )

Oh and don't mess with CDN'*, last time we invaded we burnt down your White House



Oh brotherly love

Actually, if I remember my networking classes correctly (too lazy to research it right now), HTML was created by a European (Dutch or German) and put to it'* first practical use by the US MIlitary as a backup communications system. So neener, neener, neener!

i thought the "internet" originally started as a group of colleges conencted together to share information effectively? or at least thats what my Info Sci + Networking Tech instructor said ... i think... maybe....

Okay, you made me do it (watch out, this is some boring stuff!). Found this at http://www.isoc.org/internet/history/cerf.shtml

Quote:
In 1973, the U.*. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) initiated a research program to investigate techniques and technologies for interlinking packet networks of various kinds. The objective was to develop communication protocols which would allow networked computers to communicate transparently across multiple, linked packet networks. This was called the Internetting project and the system of networks which emerged from the research was known as the "Internet." The system of protocols which was developed over the course of this research effort became known as the TCP/IP Protocol Suite, after the two initial protocols developed: Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Internet Protocol (IP).
and at http://www.isoc.org/internet/history....shtml#Origins

Quote:
...in 1965 working with Thomas Merrill, Roberts connected the TX-2 computer in Mass. to the Q-32 in California with a low speed dial-up telephone line creating the first (however small) wide-area computer network ever built.
Quote:
Due to Kleinrock'* early development of packet switching theory and his focus on analysis, design and measurement, his Network Measurement Center at UCLA was selected to be the first node on the ARPANET. All this came together in September 1969 when BBN installed the first IMP at UCLA and the first host computer was connected. Doug Engelbart'* project on "Augmentation of Human Intellect" (which included NLS, an early hypertext system) at Stanford Research Institute (SRI) provided a second node. SRI supported the Network Information Center, led by Elizabeth (Jake) Feinler and including functions such as maintaining tables of host name to address mapping as well as a directory of the RFC'*. One month later, when SRI was connected to the ARPANET, the first host-to-host message was sent from Kleinrock'* laboratory to SRI. Two more nodes were added at UC Santa Barbara and University of Utah. These last two nodes incorporated application visualization projects, with Glen Culler and Burton Fried at UCSB investigating methods for display of mathematical functions using storage displays to deal with the problem of refresh over the net, and Robert Taylor and Ivan Sutherland at Utah investigating methods of 3-D representations over the net. Thus, by the end of 1969, four host computers were connected together into the initial ARPANET, and the budding Internet was off the ground. Even at this early stage, it should be noted that the networking research incorporated both work on the underlying network and work on how to utilize the network. This tradition continues to this day.
Quote:
It was also in 1972 that the initial "hot" application, electronic mail, was introduced. In March Ray Tomlinson at BBN wrote the basic email message send and read software, motivated by the need of the ARPANET developers for an easy coordination mechanism. In July, Roberts expanded its utility by writing the first email utility program to list, selectively read, file, forward, and respond to messages. From there email took off as the largest network application for over a decade. This was a harbinger of the kind of activity we see on the World Wide Web today, namely, the enormous growth of all kinds of "people-to-people" traffic.
So, the answer is: Depends on who you ask...

The Internet is the exchange of information...........Libraries hold the title of first to do this. The first fax machines were used in libraries in the 50'*. The french had online banking in the 60'*...............and without Marconi (an Italian) and his efforts to communicate across the Atlantic from Canada there would be no telephone which was invented by Alexander Bell, a Canadian.

And for the record Bill Gates invented nothing.........he bought and re sold a disk operating system and made millions.............business man not inventor.....I read his book.
