A Few Information about the Internet

Almost from the moment that most of us wake up in the morning, we access an Internet connection. Truthfully, for a lot of us, that’s possibly even true before we climb out of bed. We hit groggily to our bed stands, get the phone, get on Facebook and Instagram, or pull up The New York Times for a little perusing as we give ourselves a few minutes to get up.

And the crazy thing? We make it happen from a small, mobile device, a thin sliver of metal that attaches us to the whole world. And while this is commonplace for us, how we make use of the Internet would be a complete marvel to somebody living back in the 1950s, though that is when the story of the Internet started.

The Internet really came about via a collaborative effort, different people adding in various pieces that contributed to what it has become in our time. Eventually, ARPAnet was born, and it was the forerunner to the Internet we are familiar with today.

A couple of the major breakthroughs?

October of 1969 was the first time there was an exchange between two computers: one at Stanford and one at UCLA. This infamous one-word communication, “LOGIN,” was the first message ever to be imparted between two computers. And also then, only the first two letters came through.

And while it’s practically impossible for us to imagine a time when we weren’t talking with people in countries across the world, it was unexpected when the first connection across the Atlantic occurred in 1973.

In 1991, Tim Berners-Lee came up with the worldwide web and the rest is history, cuz let’s be honest … we use it for everything. Shopping for clothes, shoes, cosmetics, guns, car accessories, phone accessories, security systems, and basically everything else, too. And we certainly can’t fathom a world where we aren’t doing business on a huge scale, either…cuz if there’s one thing that has changed the world of business more than any other, the Internet would be a pretty strong contender.

We typically help businesses with their transportation concerns. Sometimes we assist shuttle during a convention, sometimes we give transportation to and from the airport, sometimes we look after an executive retreat, and sometimes we are chosen to transport the entire office to the slopes for the Christmas party.
