INVENTION OF THE INTERNET
The Internet is something which many of us now take for granted (take for granted), but the invention of the Internet is rather recent. The Internet is essentially a network connecting thousands of smaller networks into a single global network.
The Internet model was developed in 1973 by Vinton Cerf, an American computer scientist. His project was backed by the United States Department of Defense. Later Cerf made many efforts to build and standardize the Internet technology.
The Internet is known to grow to phenomenal levels over a short period of time. In 1996 about 30 million computers had been connected to the Internet in 180 different countries. But already in June 2012 more than 2.4 billion people - over a third of the world's human population - have used the services of the Internet.
Such popularity of the Internet is explained by the fact that it has enabled entirely new forms of social interaction and activities thanks to its basic features. The low cost and nearly instantaneous sharing of ideas, knowledge, and skills has made collaborative work dramatically easier. Lonely people tend to use the Internet as an outlet for their feelings and to share their stories with others.
