Done and dusted.
I now have an understanding of how and why the internet was developed and its relationship to the Cold War, and how it was already in existence in the late Nineteen Sixty’s. Also if it was not for the different Universities in the USA who set up various mainframes and minicomputers on each campus, the Internet could not have advanced as it did by 1989 to become “the Internet”.
It is also interesting to learn that as early as 1970 new protocols were added to allow new types of data communication to be used, and that it was in 1983 that these protocols became known TCP/IP, and the protocol “HTTP” was developed which is why we today have the “point and click” facility to make surfing easy. Thank goodness for Tim Berneers-Lee who wrote the programme “World Wide Web” to link everything on the internet and thereby making it easier and faster for us to find the information we are seeking.

It was interesting to conceptualize the Internet. There is a lot more going on behind the scenes and I am thankful to the creators of HTTP, URLs and browsers because that means we do not have to deal with any of this nitty gritty stuff.
