National Internet Day
The importance of the internet needs not to be described in words, As now we cannot imagine most things without the use of the internet. From eliminating distance barriers to encouraging innovations, from upgrading studies to shopping and playing games, everything now mostly revolves around the internet. Therefore to recognize its importance and its role in our lives, we mark 29 October annually as National Internet Day.
Internet day marks the origin of the first online message ever sent. It was on October 29, 1969, Charley Kline, a student of UCLA campus, tried sending a message to his colleague named Bill Duvall, at Stanford. After multiple computer crashes and failures, they succeeded in sending the first message over ARPANET -“LOGIN”. The amazing thing is that it all started with just two letters i.e. -“L” and “O”. Hence, to celebrate this success of the emergence of the internet, we recognize National Internet Day.
