    Arpanet network

    Few were paying attention back on Sept. 2, 1969, when about 20 people gathered in Kleinrock’s lab at the University of California, Los Angeles, to watch as two bulky computers passed meaningless test data through a 4.5-meter gray cable.

    That was the beginning of the fledgling Arpanet network. Stanford Research Institute joined a month later, and UC Santa Barbara and the University of Utah did by year’s end.

    The 1970s brought e-mail and the TCP/IP communications protocols, which allowed multiple networks to connect — and formed the Internet. The ‘80s gave birth to an addressing system with suffixes like “.com” and “.org” in widespread use today.

    The Internet didn’t become a household word until the ‘90s, though, after a British physicist, Tim Berners-Lee, invented the Web, a subset of the Internet that makes it easier to link resources across disparate locations. Meanwhile, service providers like America Online connected millions of people for the first time.

    That early obscurity helped the Internet blossom, free from regulatory and commercial constraints that might discourage or even prohibit experimentation.

    “For most of the Internet’s history, no one had heard of it,” Zittrain said. “That gave it time to prove itself functionally and to kind of take root.”

    Even the US government, which funded much of the Internet’s early development as a military project, largely left it alone, allowing its engineers to promote their ideal of an open network.

    ... ikaw kaylan ka nag-simula mag-internet?

    when??

    I started using the Internet 1998. It was during the migration from 33.6Kbps to 56Kbps v.92 connection ng mga ISP. I think it was Sky Internet ang naging top ISP nun followed by Pacific Internet and Infocom. Tapos uso pa nun yung mang-hack ng dial-up account para lang makapag-IRC...HEHEHEHE!!!!

    har har har kaw talaga Hitachie...

    beginning late 1990's the booming of internet thru dial up hehehe

    maraming mga prepaid cards flying arounds hehehe

    got my pldt 128kbps for 2.5K broadband back then in 2001-2002 hehehe

    pero di pa rin nahuhupay ang prepaid dial up

    but now the prepaid 3G .. is becoming a threat to the dial up...

    not yet though due to the cost of modem is still at 2K... but once the cost of USB modem will be same or almost near as the cost of PCI 56K modem .. then thats a real battle hehehe
