Anyone know perhaps what the first site or page on the internet was? Anyone seen that commercial, where the guy is sitting at his computer and he turns to his wife and says "I found the end of the internet" Well im pretty computer savvy and realize there isnt an end. But what was the first page on the internet or how does that work??
dont you kno?
Al Gore invented the internet! DUH!
The internet was created late 80's as a method for Universities to communicate with eachother, as well as the military. As the coding and the technology became more advanced, it was civilianized into the internet you have now.
First internet was something like 28 kbps, and that was fast. Then it became 56 kpbs, which is standard dial up. Then Digital Signal Line (I think thats it) or DSL evolved thru modified telephone wires. DSL typicially runs 300 kbps to 350.
-Sidenote: 56k is the highest rate of transfer that can be accomplished thru normal telephone lines, thats why its the standard.
Then Cable evolved, and works thru the cable lines. It was much faster when it first came out, something like 600 kbps I think, but now sense many people use it, its down to 550.
Then came the T-1 line. I dont kno too much about it, but I kno its like 500 a month for it, and very few people have it. I think the transfer rate is upwards of 1,000 kbps, correct me if Im wrong.

Not sure what that link is Beef Flaps.
Tim Berners-Lee invented what most people think of when the internet is mentioned (http), but like Peeping Tom said it's much older than that.
