The Origins of the Internet
The internet evolved from a niche government tool to a nearly universal platform for communications and entertainment.
The internet is now central to our daily lives, a place to access a free flow of information and communicate with people all over the world instantly. But this wasn’t always the case.
Now a global, decentralized means of connection, the internet began as a secure, closed information-sharing network of the U.S. Department of Defense and research institutions.
