No. In fact the launch of Sputnik by the USSR urged the United States to establish the ARPA or the Advanced Research Projects Agency, later to be known as the Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency or the DARPA, to get back the technological lead over them. ARPA then established the Information Processing Technology Office or IPTO, the head of which was chosen to be J.C.R Licklider.

Later on, Licklider got Lawrence Roberts to lead a project to execute a network, which later expanded to Canada, Europe and Australia as well, by the year 1981.
The network actually received public notice when CERN promoted the new World Wide Web.

As the decade progressed, the Internet effectively incorporated the majority of formerly existing public computer networks, and this development is frequently credited to the lack of central administration.
