History, The Geography of the internet The internet is a network of networks connected. The origins of the internet comes from the US government in 1960s and was used to make an easy form of computer communication. With a bit of help from the UK a precursor network called the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET)was created. The first two nodes of which became part of ARPANET were set up between Leonard Kleinrock's Network Measurement Centre and Douglas Engelbart's NLS system at SRI International on the 29 October 1969. Now that both of the networks have been connected into their own networks of networks they can now communicate freely to each other and thus the internet was born and many more networks joined the network of networks which expanded the internet to different colleges and institutions. The term internet was first created by Verton Cerf, Yogen Dalala and Carl Sunshine. The internet is called the internet because it is short for internetworking. More people could access ARPANET in 1981 when the (CSNET) Computer Science Network was developed by National Science Foundation (NSF). Later in 1982 (TCP/IP)Internet protocol Suite was introduced as the world-wide interconnected networks, The Internet.

TY BLOG hi, this is my blog on the geography of the internet. I hope it turns out well, especially as I am trying to make it in HTML rather than the compose feature.
