The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks.The internet in simple terms is a network of the interlinked computer networking worldwide, which is accessible to the general public. These interconnected computers work by transmitting data through a special type of packet switching which is known as the IP or the internet protocol. A computer that connects to the Internet can access information from a vast number of servers and other computers. An Internet connection also allows the computer to send information onto the network; that information may be saved and ultimately accessed by a variety of servers and other computers. Much of the information widely accessible through use of the Internet consists of the interlinked hypertext documents and other resources of the World Wide Web (WWW). Web users typically send and receive information using a web browser; other software for interacting with computer networks includes specialized programs for electronic mail, online chat, file transfer and file sharing. Information is moved around the Internet by packet switching using the standardized Internet Protocol Suite (TCP/IP). It is a "network of networks" that consists of millions of private and public, academic, business, and government networks of local to global scope that are linked by copper wires, fiber-optic cables, wireless connections, and other technologies. The use of IP in the Internet is the integral part of the network, as they provide the services of the internet, through different layers organization through the IP data packets. There are other protocols that are the sub-classes of the IP itself, like TCP and HTTP.
An HTTP cookie
is a parcel of textual information sent by a server
to a World Wide Web browser
and then sent back by the browser each time it accesses that server. HTTP cookies
are used for user authentication, user tracking, and maintaining user-specific information such as site preferences and electronic shopping carts. Cookies have been of concern for Internet privacy
, since they can be used for tracking the browsing of a user. As a result, they have been subject to legislation in various countries such as the United States
, as well as the European Union
. Cookies have also been criticised because the identification of users they provide is not always accurate and because they can be used for network attacks. Some alternatives to cookies exist, but have their own drawbacks. On the other hand, cookies have been subject to a number of misconceptions, mostly based on the erroneous notion that they are computer programs

Dr. Douglas C. Engelbart
(born January 30, 1925 in Oregon
) is an American inventor
descent. As a World War II
naval radio technician
based in the Philippines
, Engelbart was inspired by Vannevar Bush
's article "As We May Think
". Engelbart received a Bachelor's degree
in electrical engineering from Oregon State University
in 1948, a B.Eng. from UC Berkeley
in 1952, and a Ph.D.
from UC Berkeley in 1955. At Stanford Research Institute
, Engelbart was the primary force behind the design and development of the On-Line System
, or NLS. He and his team at the Augmentation Research Center
developed computer-interface elements such as bit-mapped screens, groupware, hypertext
and precursors to the graphical user interface
. In 1967, Engelbart applied for and later received a patent
for the wooden shell with two metal wheels (computer mouse
). Engelbart later revealed that it was nicknamed the "mouse" because the tail came out the end. He would also work on the ARPANET
, the precursor of the Internet
. In later years he moved to the private firm Tymshare after SRI was transferred to the company. McDonnell Douglas
took over the copany in 1982, and in 1986 he left the company. As of 2007, he is the director of his own company, the Bootstrap Institute, which founded in 1988 and located in Fremont, California
