International Internet Day

International Internet Day is celebrated annually on 29 October. The day commemorates the anniversary of the first message that was sent between two computers on 29 October 1969 through ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network).

The first message exchange through the network was to programmer Bill Duvall at Stanford Research Institute by UCLA professor Leonard Kleinrock and his student and programmer Charley Cline. The duo attempted to send the word “login” as the first message. However, the system crashed after they wrote the letters l and o, resulting in the first-ever message sent on the network being the word “lo”.
The word “login” was sent an hour later by the programmers.

Since then, the Internet has transformed our lives in a monumental way, making it unthinkable to imagine a world without it. From smartphones and social media to cyber security, the network is present everywhere.
