Happy Birthday, Internet! WWW is now 30 Years old!


Vint Cerf and Robert Kahn designed and developed, TCP/IP and put into use on tcp-ipJanuary 1, 1983. Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) switched from using Network Control Protocol to Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocol, or TCP/IP.

Six years later, in 1989, British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee used the TCP/IP to connect a series of hypertext documents he called the World Wide Web(WWW).

There are a lot of important milestones in the history of the Internet, so it’s a little difficult to pin down exactly when it was born, but the 30th anniversary of the switch to TCP/IP was the most important step; which made WWW what it is today.
