  • Nuclear war, cat gifs and reddit? Wait, what?
    Who was the genius who came up with all of that? The internet is such a crucial tool in our daily lives today that we hardly remember that it hasn't been here forever. But yeah, it is actually not that old. We still have fuzzy memories about the time before the first thing in the morning was to check email and browse our favorite blogs and youtube channels. Well, let's explore how the internet came into existence and why.
    And another Kurzgesagt video that isn't depressing! Don't get used to it though.
    We funny comments at the end of the video are real comments from real people, from old YGS Episodes from Jacksfilms: vnclip.net/user/jacksfilms
    The MUSIC is available here: bit.ly/1hvOiYO
    Thanks to Max from Moby Digg for the cat ;)
    If you like the MUSIC of the video, you can get it here: bit.ly/1fCOlLI
    Next Video: May. Topic: Nuclear Energy
    Videos, explaining things. Like evolution, time, space, global energy or our existence in this strange universe.
    We are a team of designers, journalists and musicians who want to make science look beautiful. Because it is beautiful.

    Actually, the better way to look at the internet is this, its basically a glorified 1950's radio, if you go even further back, its Morse Code, thats right, your smartphone is just a evolved Morse Code machine, basically just deals with millions of switches on and off, we then realised radio waves could be used to transmit sound and images, thn digital coding helped us to where we are now.

    They built the network pieces, then they built the web, and now they need to make everything work smoothly together. I cannot use VNclip and type a comment at the same time without a lot of glitchy problems. That is on you guys.

    Typical. Science should stay away from misinformation & egotistical disinformation. But as this channel illustrates with this post, scientists are people. Jealous, petty people.

    My mom thinks the internet is bad for my depression. I don't have depression, I have adult ADHD that was poorly treated. Now it's fine. And I work a lot with my hands, so I can't be typing all the time.

    You can thank the hindu Indians as internet would not exist hadn't foreign white race use our numbers(IndiA 100bce), number zero(invented by Aryabhatta and first used as a number symbol by Brahmagupta), binary code(pingala200bce earliest known Sanskrit treatise on prosody), fiber optics (Narinder singh),e mail(Shiv ayudurrai not Thomas),wireless communications(jagdish chandra bose in the year 1819) and science is from hindu Indians hence the word indian Vedic science.

    The history of the Internet begins with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. Initial concepts of wide area networking originated in several computer science laboratories in the United States, United Kingdom, and France.[1] The U.S. Department of Defense awarded contracts as early as the 1960s, including for the development of the ARPANET project, directed by Robert Taylor and managed by Lawrence Roberts. The first message was sent over the ARPANET in 1969 from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock's laboratory at University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) to the second network node at Stanford Research Institute(SRI).
    Packet switching networks such as the NPL network, ARPANET, Merit Network, CYCLADES, and Telenet, were developed in the late 1960s and early 1970s using a variety of communications protocols.[2] Donald Davies first demonstrated packet switching in 1967 at the National Physics Laboratory(NPL) in the UK, which became a testbed for UK research for almost two decades.[3][4] The ARPANET project led to the development of protocols for internetworking, in which multiple separate networks could be joined into a network of networks.
    The Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) was developed by Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf in the 1970s and became the standard networking protocol on the ARPANET, incorporating concepts from the French CYCLADES project directed by Louis Pouzin. In the early 1980s the NSF funded the establishment for national supercomputing centers at several universities, and provided interconnectivity in 1986 with the NSFNETproject, which also created network access to the supercomputer sites in the United States from research and education organizations. Commercial Internet service providers (ISPs) began to emerge in the very late 1980s. The ARPANET was decommissioned in 1990. Limited private connections to parts of the Internet by officially commercial entities emerged in several American cities by late 1989 and 1990,[5] and the NSFNET was decommissioned in 1995, removing the last restrictions on the use of the Internet to carry commercial traffic.
    In the 1980s, research at CERN in Switzerland by British computer scientist Tim Berners-Leeresulted in the World Wide Web, linking hypertext documents into an information system, accessible from any node on the network.[6] Since the mid-1990s, the Internet has had a revolutionary impact on culture, commerce, and technology, including the rise of near-instant communication by electronic mail, instant messaging, voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone calls, two-way interactive video calls, and the World Wide Web with its discussion forums, blogs, social networking, and online shopping sites. The research and education community continues to develop and use advanced networks such as JANET in the United Kingdom and Internet2 in the United States. Increasing amounts of data are transmitted at higher and higher speeds over fiber optic networks operating at 1 Gbit/s, 10 Gbit/s, or more. The Internet's takeover of the global communication landscape was almost instant in historical terms: it only communicated 1% of the information flowing through two-way telecommunications networks in the year 1993, already 51% by 2000, and more than 97% of the telecommunicated information by 2007.[7] Today the Internet continues to grow, driven by ever greater amounts of online information, commerce, entertainment, and social networking. However, the future of the global internet may be shaped by regional differences in the world.[8]
