In 1969, The Internet was born as computer scientists forged the global networkʹs first primitive connection. A small crowd gathered inside professor Len Kleinrockʹs lab at the University of California, Los Angeles, where two bulky computers with flashing white lights were linked by a 15-foot cable. Silently, meaningless bits of information flowed between the computers. It was a test of the technology that remains the foundation of the Internet. Hardly anybody outside Kleinrockʹs lab noticed when the first network test succeeded. The project grew from the needs of the Defense Departmentʹs Advance Research Projects Agency, which was formed after the Soviet Unionʹs 1957 launch of Sputnik, the first manmade satellite to orbit the Earth. Officials wanted a fast and efficient way of sharing information between research centers. The network needed to be decentralized so that that one failure would not kill the system. And the computers needed to speak a common language of data chopped into packets, each labeled with instructions on where to go and how to be reassembled. Kleinrock pioneered the technology, later known as packet switching, as a graduate student at Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He wrote the first paper on the subject in 1961. He became a professor at UCLA in 1963. In 1969, ARPA chose his lab for the first test communication between a host computer and an Interface Message Processor. The IMP would act as a translator between the local computers and the network. After the first test, the network quickly grew. By the end of 1969, four sites had been connected: UCLA, the Stanford Research Institute, UC Santa Barbara and the University of Utah. The number increased to ten within seven months. Applications like e-mail and file transfer utilities emerged in subsequent years, but it was not until the late 1980s, when the World Wide Web appeared, the network became a force not only in research but also in commerce and culture. The refrigerator-size IMP was decommissioned in the 1980s.
