The ArTicLe :

My  CommenTs : 
Starting out as a small military experiment some years ago, the internet is quickly becoming one of the most popular forms of communication the world over. With a present population of about 40 million users worldwide, it seems  to have a very promising future. Uncensored and almost impossible to monitor, it’s a breeding ground for all sorts of offensive and derogatory information. On the other hand, it is probably the biggest single source of data the best single best of data in the world brought home into your personal computer. During the 1960, this intriguing concept of a decentralized, blastproof, packet-switching network was kicked around by RAND, MIT, and UCLA. The National Physical Lab in great Britain set up the first test network on these principles in 1968.
The first nodes of the Intemet were built by the RAND corporation. They faced the problem of keeping communications between U.S. authorities active in the aftermath of a nuclear war. The country needed a command-and-control nefwork. The biggest problem was protecting the main server, which could be knocked out by a single atomic warhead. RAND come up with the solutionn 1964. The new network would have no central authority, and secondly, it would be designed to operate in shambles. During the 1960's, this intriguing concept of a decentralized, blastproof, packers smirching network was kicked around by RAND, MIT and UCLA. The National Physical Laboratory in Great Britain set up the first test network on these principles in 1968. Shortly afterward, the Pentagon's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) decided to fund a larger ambitious project in the USA. The nodes of the network were to be high-speed supercomputers at the time. These were rare and valuable machines which were in real need of good solid networking, for the sake of  national research-and-development projects.
The internet is just starting to have a large impact on society. It seemed to come out of nowhere, popping up in magazines and on the news. The internet is now becoming an influential communications medium to over 40 million people worldwide.  Many of these people are becoming aware of the internet’s commercial capabilities and they are taking advantage on them. According to some recent estimates, the amount of traffic on the Internet has been increasing 10 % per month, and the number of new applications and services has been increasing quickly. There are tens of thousands of sites scattered throughout the World Wide Web.  The present day estimate of the number of Internet users worldwide is somewhere between 20 and80 million. This is a huge increase to the number just decade ago. The Internet is full of technology and full of tools, all of which help you to send and receive electronic mail, participate in discussions about topics, and access information resources.
