History of the Internet
-- Birth of Internet
ARPANET commissioned by DoD for research into networking
Why is this relevant?
First node at UCLA (Los Angeles) closely followed by nodes at Stanford Research Institute, UCSB (Santa Barbara) and U of Utah (4 Nodes).
-- People communicate over a network
15 nodes (23 hosts) on ARPANET.
E-mail invented -- a program to send messages across a distributed network. Why is this relevant?
E-mail is still the main way of inter-person communication on the Internet today.
We will study how to use and send E-mail shortly in this course.
You will make extensive use of E-mail for the rest of your life.
-- Computers can connect more freely and easily
First public demonstration of ARPANET between 40 machines.
Internetworking Working Group (INWG) created to address need for establishing agreed upon protocols.
Why is this relevant?
Telnet is still a relevant means of inter-machine connection today.
-- Global Networking becomes a reality
First international connections to the ARPANET: University College of London (England) and Royal Radar Establishment (Norway)
Ethernet outlined -- this how local networks are basically connected today.
Internet ideas started.
Gateway architecture sketched on back of envelope in hotel lobby in San Francisco. Gateways define how large networks (maybe of different architecture) can be connected together.
File Transfer protocol specified -- how computers send and receive data.
-- Packets become mode of transfer
Transmission Control Program (TCP) specified. Packet network Intercommunication -- the basis of Internet Communication.
Telenet, a commercial version of ARPANET, opened -- the first public packet data service.

Another way to look at it is that all the click through on web sites is just a huge voting machine.
Surely the PTB will be offering up flavors of "popular" interest for their agendas. You can cloth a NWO agenda any number of different ways, even the big super pharmacies are offering to flavor your medicine.

but if you think about it these very words i am typing has left a trail right frommy isp to here....so there is not real protection cause once the know who your provider is nothing to stop them from finding out where the originator is. but really shold you be worried about it unless your doing something wrong anyways....cause we have not quite hit the point of thought crimes.

Especially all the included webcams on laptops as standard I figured this much, but who knows? They need to put whatever firmware they use for that out and maybe it will be more easily proven in my opinion

and yet I say it again,.
unless you hold a close attachment to the superficial life that is the internet,.
why does it really matter

Eventually supercomputers will be able to monitor ever aspect of the web unless you encrypt your data flow. Make friends with friendly hackers because they ARE the only protectors of privacy in this new world of ours. I think ATS needs a forum dedicated to internet security and privacy.
