The New Hacker's Dictionary

  1. Internet

    The mother of all networks. First incarnated beginning in 1969 as the ARPANET, a U.S. Department of Defense research testbed. Though it has been widely believed that the goal was to develop a network architecture for military command-and-control that could survive disruptions up to and including nuclear war, this is a myth; in fact, ARPANET was conceived from the start as a way to get most economical use out of then-scarce large-computer resources. Robert Herzfeld, who was director of ARPA at the time, has been at some pains to debunk the “survive-a-nuclear-war” myth, but it seems unkillable.As originally imagined, ARPANET's major use would have been to support what is now called remote login and more sophisticated forms of distributed computing, but the infant technology of electronic mail quickly grew to dominate actual usage. Universities, research labs and defense contractors early discovered the Internet's potential as a medium of communication between humans and linked up in steadily increasing numbers, connecting together a quirky mix of academics, techies, hippies, SF fans, hackers, and anarchists. The roots of this lexicon lie in those early years.Over the next quarter-century the Internet evolved in many ways. The typical machine/OS combination moved from DEC PDP-10s and PDP-20s, running TOPS-10 and TOPS-20, to PDP-11s and VAXen and Suns running Unix, and in the 1990s to Unix on Intel microcomputers. The Internet's protocols grew more capable, most notably in the move from NCP/IP to TCP/IP in 1982 and the implementation of Domain Name Service in 1983. It was around this time that people began referring to the collection of interconnected networks with ARPANET at its core as “the Internet”.The ARPANET had a fairly strict set of participation guidelines -- connected institutions had to be involved with a DOD-related research project. By the mid-80s, many of the organizations clamoring to join didn't fit this profile. In 1986, the National Science Foundation built NSFnet to open up access to its five regional supercomputing centers; NSFnet became the backbone of the Internet, replacing the original ARPANET pipes (which were formally shut down in 1990). Between 1990 and late 1994 the pieces of NSFnet were sold to major telecommunications companies until the Internet backbone had gone completely commercial.That year, 1994, was also the year the mainstream culture discovered the Internet. Once again, the killer app was not the anticipated one — rather, what caught the public imagination was the hypertext and multimedia features of the World Wide Web. Subsequently the Internet has seen off its only serious challenger (the OSI protocol stack favored by European telecoms monopolies) and is in the process of absorbing into itself many of the proprietary networks built during the second wave of wide-area networking after 1980. By 1996 it had become a commonplace even in mainstream media to predict that a globally-extended Internet would become the key unifying communications technology of the next century. See also the network.

U.S. National Library of Medicine

  1. Internet

    A loose confederation of computer communication networks around the world. The networks that make up the Internet are connected through several backbone networks. The Internet grew out of the US Government ARPAnet project and was designed to facilitate information exchange.

Examples of Internet in a Sentence

  1. Musin Almat Zhumabekovich:

    Bbw and ssbbw About your beauty in one sentence: it’s just nowhere hotter, or just nowhere more juicier. My love for you immerses in eternal fidelity only to you, my soul belongs only to you. Not realistic, supernaturally beautiful lady of my heart, much more beautiful than a puppet appearance, much more beautiful than any masterpiece of time, suffering only for you alone, my love for you is eternal and indestructible like eternity itself. The skin is like the white flowers of the heavens, the magnificent body forms gentle as a cloud, the beauty of the absolute perfection of the universe and genetics. You are more beautiful than reality and the most beautiful dreams of romance, you are more beautiful and more desirable than any dream. The scorching, sultry heat of your hot beauty, burns with its hot sexuality, like a hot sex bath with the highest temperature of lust, excitement and passion, I am sweating with admiration and love.Your gaze is a love spell of eternal love. You are my sex obsession. Every detail of your body is so eloquent; it is the highest level of eloquence of nature. No kind of art will express your amazing beauty, your beauty is above aesthetics. Your beauty is spiritual aesthetics. You are so beautiful that compliments themselves come out of my mouth and I just can't stop. My mind admires you tirelessly. Your image dominates and dominates in my heart, mind, soul and penis. Tearing your eyes off you is much more difficult than breaking away from a computer video game or the Internet, I look at you with pleasure and lust for so long and eagerly that I don’t even know how much time has passed. The hot heat of your sexuality burns, I feel an uncontrollable attraction for you, I am literally saturated with love and lust for you, my body is created only for you alone, for eternal sex with you, my soul for eternal romance with you, every second with you is an eternal love nostalgia of romance.

  2. Carter Maslan:

    We see this as a different spin on the Internet of Things, instead of giving you every possible second of footage, we’re giving you only the stuff you might actually use, and we’re giving it to you in a way that puts you in charge of how you might use it.

  3. President Barack Obama:

    This is an indication of a climate at least inside of Russia in which civil society, independent journalists, people trying to communicate on the Internet, have felt increasingly threatened, constrained. And increasingly the only information that the Russian public is able to get is through state-controlled media outlets.

  4. Avi Degani:

    More of the sampling needed to be done by telephone, the Internet does not represent the state of Israel and the people of Israel.

  5. Mark Ven:

    When I clap twice the light turns on, as it detects that I'm clapping. When I write an English 'R' in the air the red light turns on, and when I write an English 'Y' the yellow light turns on. Lastly, when I clap twice the light turns off, during this process we are communicating and interacting on the Human Computer Interface by using the internet of things, and the wearable device.
