  • Chicklider's Impact On Society

    The results came in and they were extremely poor, Roberts then realized the computers were inefficient because the circuit-ran telephone line system they were using was inadequate in keeping up with the communication between the two computers. This furthermore confirmed Roberts’ notion that packet switching was necessary in order to make Licklider’s dream of “a galactic network” a reality for everyday people. In 1966, Roberts approached DARPA with his plan regarding the computer network concept of ARPANET, the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network, which would eventually be published in 1967. At the conference where Roberts presented his paper about ARPANET, there was a paper on the packet network concept from the United Kingdom Company NPL, as well. NPL CEO Roger Scantleberry told Roberts about the packet network concept and the company RAND that had also written a paper on packet switching networks for encrypted voice communication in the military. By coincidence, the work at MIT, NPL, and RAND had happened at the same time without any of the companies knowing about each other’s…

  • Technology And Depression

    the airplane, the automobile, and the computer - says little about his intelligence, but speaks volumes about his laziness.” This quote was said by Mark Kennedy an American writer. As this may be a funny quote it is also true. Technology has been growing rapidly over the course of history. We lived in a world where writing letters were the normal thing to do. However, things have changed and people are not the way they use to be. We have become anti-social and a shy society. It has come to a…

  • Ip4 History

    The internet is called the highway of information by many people, and funny enough the same man who gave us the federal highway act also gave us the precursor to the internet. It was called Arpanet and was developed and funded by Advanced Research Projects Agency which is now Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. A man by the name of Leonard Kleinrock was the main architect in the internet’s design, a brilliant man who made several contributions to computer science. The goal was to create a…

  • The Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP)

    Postel’s comments led to the creation of TCP/IP architecture, and the splitting of TCP into TCP at the transport layer and IP at the network layer. Then in November, 1977, a three-network TCP/IP test was conducted between sites in the US, UK, and Norway. (CITE) 1978 saw version 3 of TCP as the process of dividing TCP into two parts began. Then in 1980 the first formal standard versions (version 4) of IP and TCP were created to be used in modern networks. In 1981 the Internet Protocol (IP) was…

  • The Internet Should Not Be Used For Primary Education Analysis

    Origin The Internet has proven to be one of the greatest advancements of the twentieth century. So much so that many could not bear the possibility of not having access to it at all times. The Internet has gone through three basic forms during it’s growth, it started as an idea, became a reality as ARPANET, and expanded to the world as the Internet that is known today. Johnny Ryan points out in his book A History of the Internet and the Digital Future that the Internet is the result of a desire…

  • Samuel Morse: The Invention Of The Electric Telephone

    This ARPANET was under development since 1962 when J.C Licklider from MIT was thinking of a way for people to quickly access information anywhere. It was funded by the the US defence department because they wanted to facilitate the sharing of resources and informations for military and research personal. The ARPANET was shown to a larger audience in 1972 along with a tool that would provide instant messaging over great distances called Email. This tool allowed the creators of the ARPANET to…

  • The Sputnik's Role In The Cold War

    frivolous things.”(Invention) The U.S. Defense Department wanted to find ways information could be distributed no matter what happens even if it is a nuclear attack. “They needed a government weapon in the Cold War.” (Invention) This led to the formation of the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) which is the government’s computer network and which evolved into the Internet as we think of it today. Scientists and military people questioned what happens if the Soviets attack on…

  • Algorithm: Exponential Growth Of The Internet And The World Wide Web

    The Internet was originally called the ARPANET, and in order to enhance the ARPANET to be enable may different types of computer networks to all communicate with each other, an open source protocol needed to be created, hence the development of TCP/IP. TCP/IP improved communications throughout the network and allowed all computers to easily communicate with one another. Another technology that helped expand the ARPANET to more users in a specific location was the development of the Ethernet.…

  • In The History Of The Computer, By Elizabeth Raum

    Basically anything that someone could come up with can be created using computing. V. Internet The internet has revolutionized the computer and means of the way people communicate for the past decades. The concept of the internet was just an idea among few Researchers who used a method created by a MIT scientist, Leonard Kleinrock. This idea was called Packet switching, it grouped data into sized blocks called packets so the packets can go about its own way through networks. Early development in…

  • History Of Synchronous Communication

    October 4th 1957, during the Cold War the first unmanned satellite, Sputnik 1, was sent into orbit by the Soviet Union. The fear of being outnumbered by USSR’s missiles emerged.In order to secure America 's lead in technology, the US founded the "Defense Advanced Research Project Agency" in February 1958. At that time, knowledge was only transferred by people. The DARPA planned a large-scale computer network in order to improve the knowledge transfer rate and avoid the doubling up of existing…
