From XTRA.com: "You may wonder how the Internet was created, and what makes it work.
The seed for the Internet can be traced back to J.C.R Licklide of MIT, who in 1962
wrote about his "Galactic Network" concept. His vision was of a global network of
computers that could be easily and quickly accessed by anyone - near enough to
what the internet is as we know it today."
