Celebrating the Birthday of the Internet



See The Birth of the Internet. An Architectural Conception for Solving the Multiple Network Problem.


Vinton G. Cerf and Robert E. Kahn, "A Protocol for Packet Network Intercommunication", IEEE Transactions on Communications, vol Com-22, No. 5, May 1974, pg. 637.


See From the ARPANET to the Internet: A Study of the ARPANET TCP/IP Digest and the Role of Online Communication in the Transition from the ARPANET to the Internet.


January 1, 1983 is an important date to celebrate. Another is ten years earlier, in 1973, when Kahn and Cerf came up with the original idea and plan. Yet a third and fourth are sometime in 1976, most likely, when the first two node tests were done, probably between arpanet and packet radio, and then in 1977 when the first three network tests were done.
