    In fall 1969, computers sending data between two California universities set the stage for the Internet, which became a household word in the 1990s.
    What would the 21st century be without computers?
    The machines that rule our modern lives have been around for less than a century.
    Early computers helped the allied forces during the Second World War.

    the internet will be 41 years old the end of this month lets do something special [​IMG]

    SPOILER:
    The World Wide Web was born when Tim Berners-Lee, a researcher at CERN, the high-energy physics laboratory in Geneva, developed . HTML, as it is commonly known, allowed the Internet to expand into the World Wide Web, using specifications he developed such as URL and HTTP . A browser, such as Netscape or Microsoft Internet Explorer, follows links and sends a query to a server, allowing a user to view a site.

    The Internet is the network itself, while the World Wide Web runs on the network. The Internet is still used for many other non-www related things such as usenet and irc.
