Who Invented the Internet? See how and where the World Wide Web came from

The Internet has become almost indispensable to our daily life. In Brazil, for example, there are already more than 152 million people connected. Over the years.

the network began to be used by different electronic devices, such as telephones. Smartphones and smart TVs, for example. However, many may still wonder: who invented the Internet?

At first, it is essential to emphasize that the Internet was created for military purposes during the Cold War. The novelty was the result of the collective work of a team of researchers.

When did the Internet appear?

It emerged in October 1969 thanks to Arpanet ( Network of Agency for Advanced Research Projects or Network of Advanced Research Projects Agency), an organization of the Department of Defense of the United States.

Na epoch or resource also served to connect universities and research laboratories. Universidade da Califórnia, inclusive, was the first to e-mail other ensino institutions saying: “You are receiving isso.”

One of your primary resources is the TCP / IP communication protocol (in Portuguese, Control Protocol, and Internet Protocol, respectively).

Communication protocol on the World Wide Web

The TCP / IP communication protocol is the one that establishes how data should be transmitted and received on the web. It was a way created by the researchers to allow “conversation” between several different computers.

Its creators were: Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf often called the “fathers of the Internet

In 1987, the Internet had its commercial use released. As early as 1992, the World Wide Web (WWW) emerged, a network within the Internet created by British scientist Tim Berners-Lee. This is the part that most of us use and where all the sites are hosted..”

Tim was also the creator of the language used to create websites (HTML) and HTTP (a protocol that manages Internet connections).

In 2003, the scientist received a knighthood from the Queen of England. He currently serves as a professor at two institutions (the University of Oxford and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

Finally, Cerf and Kahn received in 2004 the AMTuring award, the most relevant congratulations in computing.
