Description

Learn about the invention of The Internet with iMinds insightful audio knowledge series.

The story of the Internet begins in the early 1960s, when Russia launched Sputnik 1, the first artificial earth satellite. Afraid of the technological potential of the Russians, the United States Department of Defense formed the Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), in order to develop US science and technology, and in particular its application in the military.

In order to share information between different US military and research institutions, a network was established between different computers. A government agency called RAND developed the idea of a decentralized network - so if one location was attacked, the others would still be able to connect to each other.

Perfect to listen to while commuting, exercising, shopping or cleaning the house.. iMinds brings knowledge to your MP3 with 8 minute information segments  to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.
