1969 UCLA: first station in a nationwide computer network

Today in 1969, UCLA issued a press release stating it “will become the first station in a nationwide computer network which, for the first time, will link together computers of different makes and using different machine languages into one time-sharing system.”

Supported by the Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA), the aptly named ARPANET would link multiple universities and other hubs of advanced computing into a network – a network that was, for all intents and purposes, the internet! It would be decades before Tim Berners-Lee would release his work on the World Wide Web, but the internet, as a network, began on this day in 1969.
