International Internet Day, In the News, and Enjoy

International Internet Day - Today is International Internet Day!

International Internet Day is celebrated worldwide, every year on 29th of October. Since the year 2005 the International Internet Day has been famously celebrated to commemorate the sending of the first electronic message which was transferred from one computer to another in California in 1969.

The International Internet Day project is open to everyone and anyone just as access to the Internet is open and free for everyone.

At the time when history was being made, Internet was known as ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network). In 1969 Charley Kline, a student programmer at the UCLA, transmitted the first ever message on October 29, 1969.

Leonard Kleinrock transmitted a message from the computer housed at UCLA to a computer at the Stanford Research Institute.

The Internet is a worldwide, publicly accessible series of interconnected computer networks that transmit data by packet switching, using standard IP (Internet Protocol). Now Internet has become one of the most important part of our life. Most of us cannot think of spending one day without Internet. Internet has made our lives much easier.
