"How the Federal Government Created the Internet, and How the Internet is Threatened by The Government's Withdrawal"

http://www.nathannewman.org/diss/chap2.html

The result of that government support has been an explosive boom in Internet-related industry. By reducing the cost of entry, the Internet has been crucial in making sure deep pocket corporations could not lock up whole areas in proprietary systems. Where phone systems, cellular systems, satellites and cable TV remain a competing mass of often incompatible systems, the Internet has forged an integrated system of data communication so compelling that every other technology is rushing to integrate itself into the Internet in order to take advantage of the free-flowing commerce exploding over its networks.

However, even as the broadest public began enjoying the fruits of the Internet nurtured for decades by the government, these new commercial companies spawned by the new technology became a focus of resistance to government continuing its role in assuring standards and access. New software companies like Netscape - staffed by individuals like Netscape's Marc Andreesen who had been funded originally by the government to create browser software- would fight to take control of Internet standards, while the many new "Internet Service Providers" (ISPs) would lobby hard for continual privatization of Internet backbones and regional access systems. In a few short years in the first half of the 1990s, both the governance structure and integrated backbone system created by the federal government over decades was privatized.

"Why the Feds Withdrew from Standards on the Internet"

Private industry had significantly benefited from government spending on the Internet in the period when it was not commercially viable and the government was the main market for Internet-related computer services. However, as a private market for Internet services appeared around the structure of the Internet, private industry has seen a vibrant public sector as a threat to their control of information markets. Companies that had started life as extensions of the government saw the opportunity for independence and extremely high profits as the government's role receded. As Peter Evans notes in his work, the success of government intervention in nurturing new economic sectors is often rewarded by the creation of a private sector interest in blocking further government action.

Who invented the internet?
By Evan Andrews // December 18, 2013

As you might expect for a technology so expansive and ever-changing, it is impossible to credit the invention of the Internet to a single person. The Internet was the work of dozens of pioneering scientists, programmers and engineers who each developed new features and technologies that eventually merged to become the “information superhighway” we know today.

Long before the technology existed to actually build the Internet, many scientists had already anticipated the existence of worldwide networks of information. Nikola Tesla toyed with the idea of a “world wireless system” in the early 1900s, and visionary thinkers like Paul Otlet and Vannevar Bush conceived of mechanized, searchable storage systems of books and media in the 1930s and 1940s. Still, the first practical schematics for the Internet would not arrive until the early 1960s, when MIT’s J.C.R. Licklider popularized the idea of an “Intergalactic Network” of computers. Shortly thereafter, computer scientists developed the concept of “packet switching,” a method for effectively transmitting electronic data that would later become one of the major building blocks of the Internet.

The first workable prototype of the Internet came in the late 1960s with the creation of ARPANET, or the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network. Originally funded by the U.S. Department of Defense, ARPANET used packet switching to allow multiple computers to communicate on a single network. The technology continued to grow in the 1970s after scientists Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf developed Transmission Control Protocol and Internet Protocol, or TCP/IP, a communications model that set standards for how data could be transmitted between multiple networks. ARPANET adopted TCP/IP on January 1, 1983, and from there researchers began to assemble the “network of networks” that became the modern Internet. The online world then took on a more recognizable form in 1990, when computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web. While it’s often confused with the Internet itself, the web is actually just the most common means of accessing data online in the form of websites and hyperlinks. The web helped popularize the Internet among the public, and served as a crucial step in developing the vast trove of information that most of us now access on a daily basis.

government WITHDRAWAL IS all ready on place, the public sector and private sector is responsible for it!
