  • It all started at ULA in September 1969, where a time shared computer known as the SIGMA7 was used by students and faculty The computer was then hooked up to a packet switching device or the IMP (Interface Message Processor) developed at MIT. And it was on October 9th, 1969, that the internet has “uttered” its first word. On that day Kleinrock and his team at UCLA attempted a message transmission from SIGMA7 to another computer over at Stanford Research Institute in Palo Alto. But they were only able to successfully send to letters of the word the “L” and the “O” before completing the word “login”. And the system crashed. So as a result the word Lo! As in Lo! Behold and that was the first word on the internet or the ARPANET!
