History of the Internet

The Internet has come a long way from when it first started with conceptualizations that are now today considered to be revolutionary, but back in the ages considered to be only something of a distant dream.

The Internet has revolutionized the way people communicate (Skype, Whatsapp, etc), the way people share their life experiences (Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, etc), the way news is spread (Twitter, etc), the way causes are made known (Thunderclap, etc) the way funding is obtained (Kickstarter, etc), the way education should be shared (Khan Academy, etc), and many more.

These are the start of something greater, the continual growth of the human race; for the betterment of everyone.
The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (TCP/IP) to serve several billion users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents of the World Wide Web (WWW), the infrastructure to support email, and peer-to-peer networks. - Wikipedia
Fancy as it may sound but the Internet is simple in its on complex manner. Think of it as a place that people can gather, like a country on its own (but with the global human race as its population). You can do anything, help in anyway, spread news, do business, share photos, advertise, market a brand, absolutely anything. EVERWORKS is an example of something that was given birth to because of the Internet. There are no limits making the Internet one of mankinds most crazy invention, and it is just the start.
Forty years ago, the average person followed an employment path largely determined by birth and education, often committing to one employer until retirement. Today you probably wouldn’t even consider that as a viable option. Success is no longer solely determined by the right education, the perfect resume, or even your age and background. Teens as young as 12 are now coding websites, producing films and building networks through social media. By the time they’re adults, this online generation will already have some skills and real-world experience that a formal education just can’t provide.The Internet is bringing a revolution along with it. Access to information combined with global supply and demand is reshaping established conventions and destroying old world definitions. - Forbes
