    30 years ago in 1989.

    extract.

    "Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist, invented the World Wide Web (WWW) in 1989, while working at CERN. The web was originally conceived and developed to meet the demand for automated information-sharing between scientists in universities and institutes around the world."

    Apparently the first system for computers being able to talk to each other was developed in the late 1960s although I doubt it was anything like the internet we know. The real internet as we know apparently was developed in 1990 and started to become very popular about 10 years later as many people started to own their own household computers and realised the educational value and communication abilities it had. At first there was dial up internet where when you started your internet the computer dialled your internet provider then the computer would screech and carry on as it logged onto the internet provider's modems, and then you could search the internet. At the time computers were a lot slower and it would take 30 seconds or more to download a single picture. Video hook-ups were only the size of about 1.5 inches by 1.5 inches as the system had very little bandwidth to support anything bigger. Portable memory storage was on floppy discs which first came out in 5 inch format and then the better 3 inch size. They held about 1.4 megs of information so were full after say 25 pictures were put on them. At the time it was fantastic but by today's standard it was a dinosaur.

    The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) was an early packet-switching network and the first network to implement the TCP/IP protocol suite. Both technologies became the technical foundation of the Internet. The first message on the ARPANET was sent by UCLA student programmer Charley Kline, at 10:30 p.m, on October 29, 1969 from Boelter Hall 3420, the school's main engineering building. Kline transmitted from the university's SDS Sigma 7 host computer to the Stanford Research Institute's SDS 940 host computer. The message text was the word "login"; the "l" and the "o" letters were transmitted, but the system then crashed. Hence, the literal first message over the ARPANET was "lo". About an hour later, having recovered from the crash, the SDS Sigma 7 computer effected a full "login". The first permanent ARPANET link was established on November 21, 1969, between the IMP at UCLA and the IMP at the Stanford Research Institute. By December 5, 1969, the entire four-node network was established.

    The internet as we know it started around 1995.

    Actual experimentation began in the 60s.
