The Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) is the daddy of the internet. It was a U.S. military project made to transfer information quickly. It became the basis for the internets that we know and love today.
ARPANET opened in 1969. The first four nodes of the network were University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), University of Utah, and Stanford University.
The kids who created Usenet referred to it as a "poor man's ARPANET."
After the National Science Foundation Network opened in the mid-1980s, ARPANET was closed.
