Computers Who Invented the Internet/WWW & 1st Search Engines

The British Invented Much of the Internet

By Tom Foremski, MHO & ZNET


BBC News reports that many Internet technologies were pioneered by British researchers...

It wasn't Al Gore and the US after all....


The British invented the Internet, or rather key technologies which make up the Internet.

Take a look at this article on BBC News about early British computer pioneers:



Quote:
By splitting data into packets and threading them on the same line, the carrying capacity of that link could be boosted and the whole network made more powerful.

Roger Scantlebury, who worked with Dr Davies, presented the ideas about "packet switching" to a conference in the US, where they were picked up by the creators of the nascent Arpanet, the fledgling internet.

Does that mean Britain invented the internet?

"Yes and no," said Mr Scantlebury. "Certainly the underlying technology of the internet, which is packet switching, we did invent."
British Researchers Also Worked on Hyperlinks...

Quote:
David Yates was project manager of a program called Scrapbook which rolled together word processing, e-mail and hypertext - a system that incorporated many elements of the World Wide Web.

Scrapbook went live on 28 April 1971...Scrapbook helped people across the 28 acres of the NPL campus collaborate or projects without having to sit next to each other.

British man, Tim Berners-Lee, was responsible for inventing one particular part of the Internet: the World Wide Web.


In 1989, Berners-Lee submitted a proposal at CERN to develop an information system that would create a web of information. Initially, his proposal received no reply, but he began working on his idea anyway.

In 1990, he wrote the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP)—the language computers would use to communicate hypertext documents over the Internet and designed a scheme to give documents addresses on the Internet. Berners-Lee called this address a Universal Resource Identifier (URI). (This is now usually known as a URL—Uniform Resource Locator.)

By the end of the year he had also written a client program (browser) to retrieve and view hypertext documents. He called this client "WorldWideWeb." Hypertext pages were formatted using the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) that Berners-Lee had written.

He also wrote the first web server. A web server is the software that stores web pages on a computer and makes them available to be accessed by others. Berners-Lee set up the first web server known as "info.cern.ch." at CERN.

In 1991, he made his WorldWideWeb browser and web server software available on the Internet and posted notices to several newsgroups including alt.hypertext.

The Web began to take off as computer enthusiasts around the world began setting up their own web servers.

Often the owners of the new sites would email Berners-Lee and he would link to their sites from the CERN site.

His dream of a global information space was finally happening.


The web is yet another British invention which has helped to shrink the globe in communications.

In 2007 the Queen awarded Berners-Lee with one of Britain's highest honours - the Order of Merit.


So the British did invent the Internet but with typical British modesty, didn't want to blow their own horn. At least until now....
