    This month is the 40th anniversary of the Internet. I give this blog entry space to it to say my utmost THANKS to all that it has given me and everyone who gets dependent to it when it comes to news, online jobs, music, entertainment and even looking for online friends.

    Internet started back in September 2, 1969. It started out as a network connection of two computers passing out data to each other using a cable. Then it become a network of computers passing important data between universities and research institutes. It is then called ARPANET (Advance Research Projects Agency Network). In the 70's they already started sending e-mails and connect networks to networks of computers through TCP/IP. And it the 80's, they gave birth to the domain names and suffixes like ".com".

    The word internet just became everyone's word in the 90's when Tim Berner's-Lee, invented the Web. America Online was the first internet service provider to bring internet to people.

    Internet's development was funded first by the US Government as a military project to let its engineers to make their ideal open network.

    Then the present internet came. Although there are some risks like viruses, malwares and worms, this only made us more invulnerable since programmers and software engineers finds a way to upgrade the internet's security measures, desktops computers, laptops and even mobile phones can now access the internet as a source of world and local news, entertainment and other important information. We should all be thankful that all of lived in the time when the internet is much more affordable and faster than the first time it's been publicized.
