  1. 1. All About the Internet<br />When did the Internet start?<br />In 1969 the internet was started by the U.S Department of Defense, because they wanted a communication system that would not be destroyed in case there was an emergency.<br />As a result they decided to link computers over telephone lines so if one computer failed to work the others would still be able to communicate with each other.<br />Not just a pretty screen.<br />As the system began to grow other uses were soon discovered for the internet, such as sending messages and files between computers. In the 1970’s standards for the message formats developed and by the end of the 1970’s computer networks had become international.<br />http://www.cultureandrecreation.gov.au/resources/guides/g2/s2.htm<br />What’s the difference between the internet and the World Wide Web?<br />The internet is a huge network of networks. It connects millions of computers together globally, forming a network and as a result any computer can connect with any other computer in any part of the world, as long as they are both connected to the internet.<br />The world wide web is only a medium for accessing information over the internet. It is an information sharing model that is built on top of the internet.<br />So while the internet is a network allowing people to connect with each other globally, the web is simply an added extra to the internet that allows to gain information from varied sites.<br />http://www.netvalley.com/intval/07262/main.htm?sdf=1<br />
