Summary
In the late 1960s, the Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency funded at project to create computer communication among its university-based researchers. The experiment was inspired by J.C.R. Licklider, a brilliant scientist from MIT who saw the potential of computers as communications devices. This is the story of the small group of researchers and engineers who laid the foundation for the Internet. In 1969, Arpa awarded the contract for the most integral part of this network--the Interface Message Processor (IMP) switch--to Bolt Beranek and Newman, a small Cambridge, Mass., company. Out of their efforts a nationwide network called the ARPANET grew from four initial sites, eventually merging in 1990 with the Internet it had spawned
