Internet Created- 40th Anniversary

Oct 29, 1969- the first connection of what would become the Internet was made on this day when bits of data flowed between the computers at UCLA and the Stanford Research Institute. This was the beginning of Arpanet, the precursor to the Internet developed by the Dept of Defense. By the end of 1969, four sites were connected: UCLA, Stanford Research, University of California, University of Utah.
