Almost from the moment that most of us wake up in the morning, we access an Internet connection. Frankly, for many of us, that’s probably even true before we climb out of bed. We reach groggily to our bed stands, grab the phone, get on Facebook and Instagram, or pull up The New York Times for a little perusing as we give ourselves a few minutes to wake up.
And the absurd thing? We do this from a small, mobile device, a thin sliver of metal that attaches us to the whole world. And while this is commonplace for us, how we work with the Internet would be a complete marvel to someone living back in the 1950s, though that is when the story of the Internet began.
The Internet really came about via a collaborative effort, different people adding in various pieces that contributed to what it has become in our time. Eventually, ARPAnet was born, and it was the forerunner to the Internet we are familiar with today.
A couple of the main breakthroughs?
October of 1969 was the first time there was a substitution between two computers: one at Stanford and one at UCLA. This infamous one-word communication, “LOGIN,” was the first message ever to be imparted between two computers. And even then, only the first two letters came through.
And while it’s practically impossible for us to think of a time when we weren’t talking with people in countries throughout the world, it was extraordinary when the first connection across the Atlantic occurred in 1973.
In 1991, Tim Berners-Lee came up with the worldwide web and the rest is history, cuz let’s be honest … we use it for everything. Shopping for clothes, shoes, cosmetics, guns, car accessories, phone accessories, security systems, and basically everything else, too. And we certainly can’t fathom a world where we aren’t doing business on a huge scale, either … cuz if there’s one thing that has changed the world of business more than any other, the Internet would be a pretty strong contender.
We frequently help businesses with their transportation concerns. At times we guide shuttle during a convention, sometimes we provide Bedore Tours transportation to and from the airport, sometimes we handle an executive retreat, and sometimes we are selected to transport the whole office to the slopes for the Christmas party.
