Web Essay 1 – Contents page

This essay comes from a short first year undergraduate course on the history of the Internet. The course had a couple of face-to-face seminar meetings, but was mainly taught on line. Coursework essays [US – term papers] were submitted in the form of ‘web essays’. Students were asked to create pages with hyperlinks, and although marks were given principally for the content of the essay, the final grade also took into account their web design skills.

Assignment question

The Internet has expanded very rapidly in the years between 1990 and 2000, but its origins go back to the post-war years.

Discuss the earlier phases of the development of the Net, and in particular consider the outstanding figures who have made significant technological contributions. Does any one of them seem to warrant the description of ‘creator of the Internet’?
