The actual Project name of the 'local Internets' is Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET). With the TCP/IP invention in early 1980's, much wider impact of 'Local Intranets' in US has resulted. But, there is a point not to be ignored. Word INTERNET is synonymous with World Wide Web which I feel is NOT quite correct! So, I would give credit to US DoD for the birth of the early Internet.

J. C. R. Licklider was selected to head the IPTO, and saw universal networking as a potential unifying human revolution.

Licklider had moved from the Psycho-Acoustic Laboratory at Harvard University to MIT in 1950, after becoming interested in information technology. At MIT, he served on a committee that established Lincoln Laboratory and worked on the SAGE project. In 1957 he became a Vice President at BBN, where he bought the first production PDP-1 computer and conducted the first public demonstration of time-sharing.

At the IPTO, Licklider recruited Lawrence Roberts to head a project to imple ...more
