      Believe it or not, it's been around since the 1970's. It started as a project of the U.S. Department of Defense working on ways to send information from one computer to another back in the 1960's and has grown ever since. In the early 1980s a group of academic computer scientists formed the Computer Science NETwork, which used TCP/IP protocols. Other government agencies extended the role of TCP/IP by applying it to their networks.

      In the 1980s, as large commercial companies began to use TCP/IP to build private internets, and the transmission of multimedia—audio, video, and graphics—across the Internet was looked into. Other groups investigated hypertext and created tools such as Gopher that allowed users to browse menus, which are lists of possible options. In 1989 many of these technologies were combined to create the World Wide Web.

     Initially designed to aid communication among physicists who worked in widely separated locations, the Web became immensely popular and eventually replaced other tools. Also during the late 1980s, the U.S. government began to lift restrictions on who could use the Internet, and commercialization of the Internet began. In the early 1990s, with users no longer restricted to the scientific or military communities, the Internet quickly expanded to include universities, companies of all sizes, libraries, public and private schools, local and state governments, individuals, and families.

     When are family fist went on the internet it was with dial up now we have low end DSL and it is enjoyed everyday. Yes there is a lot of bad stuff out there but there is a lot of good as well.

      Dear Lord, Thank you
  • For the internet
