International Internet Day

Internet Day

Today we can consider every day as an internet day. It’s hard to imagine a day without the internet. Just remember a day when your mobile or laptop has no internet; Many works remain pending.

Then why is there a need to celebrate world internet day? And the answer is here》The International Internet Day is celebrated globally on October 29 every year to commemorate a momentous day in the history of telecommunications and technology.  The day marks the sending of the first electronic message which was transferred from one computer to another in 1969.

The team, led by the distinguished professor of computer science, Leonard Kleinrock, would successfully transmit the first message over the ARPANET ( Advanced Research Project Agency Network) UCLA all the way to the Stanford Research Institute hundreds of miles north. At that moment, the Internet was born, and with it, an almost limitless number of possibilities for the future.

So after trillions upon trillions of sent messages over the years, what was the first Internet message? According to Kleinrock, they intended to transmit the word “Login,” but the system crashed just after they had sent the first two letters. “Hence, the first message on the Internet was ‘LO‘ — as in ‘Lo and behold!’,” Kleinrock said. “We didn’t plan it, but we couldn’t have come up with a better message: short and prophetic.”  You may have a question Who is the Father Of the Internet?》Licklider J.C.R. is known as the Father Of the Internet. Licklider envisioned a computer network that would easily transfer and retrieve information. His idea led to the creation of ARPANET, which would evolve to become today’s Internet.

First World Internet Day was celebrated on 29th October 2005 and ever since this day is really important as the internet made our lives simpler. And the day is giving us the opportunity to thank the creators for this inventive tool internet. There are 4.66 billion internet users in the world today. The total number of internet users around the world grew by 321 million in the past 12 months – more than 875,000 new users each day. Can you imagine living in an area without proper internet access? There are still some countries with very much limited internet. Bhutan, Central African Republic, Chad, Lesotho, Malawi, Solomon Islands, Somalia, and South Sudan have limited, slow, dysfunctional wifi networks and, in rural areas, very limited mobile phone coverage. Licklider J.C.R. is known as the Father Of the Internet. Licklider envisioned a computer network that would easily transfer and retrieve information. His idea led to the creation of ARPANET, which would evolve to become today’s Internet.

For being thankful for the internet and its creators we can do is using it for good works only. We should prefer cybersecurity of ours and others too while using the internet.
