The internet as we know it today was not invented the by just one person. It was the combined effort of many people that began what we now use daily both for work and enjoyment.

In 1961 there was a man named Leonard Kleinrock and he published a paper about the idea of packet switching, which is essential to the Internet. This means that packets of data can be routed from one place to another based on address information carried in the data.

In 1962 a man named J.C.R. Licklider was the first to describe an Internet-like worldwide network of computers. He called it the "Galactic Network." His discovery was almost accidental. What an exciting accident that turned out to be.

In 1965 Larry G. Roberts created the first functioning long-distance computer networks and designed the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network, the seed from which the modern Internet grew.

Bob Kahn and Vint Cerf invented the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) which moves data on the modern Internet, in 1972 and 1973.

From then on one person after the other added more technology, and improved the systems and almost daily something new was and still is added. It is hard to comprehend the capabilities of our computers today.

The Internet is one amazing thing and provides hours and even days of entertainment and work for almost everyone.

Sir Timothy John Berners-Lee (London,8 June 1955), is an English computer scientist and MIT professor credited with inventing the World Wide Web, making the first proposal for it in March 1989. On 25 December 1990, with the help of Robert Cailliau & a young student staff at CERN, he implemented the first successful communication between an HTTP client and server via the Internet. In 2007, he was ranked Joint First, alongside Albert Hofmann, in The Telegraph's list of 100 greatest living geniuses

J.C.R. Licklider proposed that social inter communication can be allowed through networking. He gave the concept of "Galactic Network" in a series of memos written in August 1962 at MIT. He imagined a world wide network of computers through which everyone could quickly access information without any geographical constraint. This concept later developed into Internet, which we are familiar with.  Licklider became the head of the computer research program at DARPA, starting in October 1962. He also gave the idea of using packets rather than circuits in communication and wrote the first paper (1961) and the book (1964) on the subject "Packet Switching Theory". Usage of this idea, i.e. Packets in communication was a mile stone in Computer Networking.    Another step in this regard was to enable intercommunication between the computers, i.e. How the computers will talk and understand each other. To accomplish this task, he worked with Thomas Merrill, Roberts and connected TX-2 computer with a low speed dial-up telephone line and created the world's first ever wide-area computer network. The result of the experiment proved the need for packet switching as the circuit switched telephone system was totally inadequate.

Sir Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. It was made available as Internet Service to the public on August 6, 1991. The first graphical point-and-click browser was called 'Mosaic'.

There is no one inventor of the Internet.  It came about as a culmination of many small and large breakthroughs in computer science. Therefore, the history of the Internet is about as complicated as the Internet itself! Highlighted here are two of the great many integral advancements in the creation of the Internet as we know it.  There are many more contributions, which can be found in the numerous books on the history of the Internet.    The seed of the idea behind the Internet was first published in a paper by Leonard Kleinrock in 1961. He introduced the concept of 'packet switching' which allowed information to be transported from one place to another based on an address, much the same way as a letter is transported to an address. Previously, 'circuit switching' was the way of getting information from one place to another.  It relied on an actual cable connecting the sender and the receiver.  This is the way that telephones work.      In 1973, the U.S. Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), began a project that built on the use of 'packet switching'. It aimed to find technologies for interlinking many different kinds of networks that used packet switching.  This would let computers communicate well across networks. To describe the system that they developed, the scientists coined the name, the 'Internet'.
