Question:
Who developed the Internet?



Replies:
Almost any of the many books now out about the Internet should tell you. If I recall correctly, the internet started as ARPAnet back in the late 70's. ARPA = Advanced Research Projects Agency was a government organization that evolved from DARPA (the D = Defense). The ARPAnet was conceived as a resource for scientists working on government research projects, and I believe that part of its charter was unlimited, free access.
