The Internet is the call to global integration of computers as a way to provide and receive data on different computers in another part of the world. It is also called the Information Superhighway or largest flow of information.
The Internet and the World Wide Web are not one, contrary to popular belief. The internet is the unification of interconnected groups of computers, connected by copper wires, fiber-optic cables, wireless connections, and so on. While the Web is a collection of interconnected linked documents and other resources, linked by hyperlinks and URLs. The World Wide Web is one of the services available on the Internet, with many more such as e-mail, file sharing, online gaming and more. The “Internet” and the “Web” often intersect in non -technical use.
The USSR’s launch of Sputnik prompted the United States to create an Advanced Research Projects Agency, known as ARPA, in February of 1958 for taking back the leadership of the technology. ARPA has created an Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO) to further research into the Semi Automatic Ground Environment (SAGE) program, which integrates a system of radars the size of a country for the first time. J. C. R. Licklider was elected head of the IPTO, and saw universal networking as a potential unifying human revolution.
Licklider moved from Harvard University’s Psycho-Acoustic Laboratory to MIT in 1950, after becoming interested in information technology. At MIT, he served on the committee that created the Lincoln Laboratory and worked on the SAGE project. In 1957, he became Vice President of BBN, where he purchased the first production PDP-1 computer and promoted the first public display of time-sharing.
