Internet Milestones (Infographic) 20 May, 2019   

The Internet has come a long way since the first message was exchanged between two computers in 1969.

What most of us don’t know, is that the Internet was originally created as a weapon in the Cold War. The first application was for scientists and researchers to communicate with one another.

The catalyst was the Russian Sputnik launch of 1957. This startled America into an accelerated interest in science in terms of science and technology education in schools, as well as the institution by the Federal American government of the technologically-significant agencies: the (American) Department of Defense’s Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), and National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to develop space-age technologies such as rockets, weapons and computers. This goes to show that the infrastructure that led to influencing the entrepreneurs of tomorrow was already being laid down in various forms.

While it started off slow in the collective consciousness and knowledge of the world, towards the late '80s and early ’90s, general awareness of the internet started to leave the realm of science fiction, and slowly seep into reality. Necessity is the mother of invention. The internet has developed in applications, scope, speed and accessibility since then. This is, not surprisingly, to deal with the demands that the internet has created.

It often pays to start early. A lot of websites that are internet leaders now laid their foundations in the early 2000s (well, Amazon, Google, eBay, and Macromedia Flash started a little earlier, but you get the idea): Tripadvisor, LinkedIn, Facebook, and so on).

Since 2000, the internet has developed exponentially, as have user demands for faster internet, and more applications to integrate the internet into our daily lives. It’s developed in applications, scope, speed and accessibility since then.

Let’s take a look at the journey which brought us here, in this Internet Milestones infographic:
