ARPANET 1970 Map.png

Today in 1969 the first permanent ARPANET link was established. It was the first large-scale, general-purpose computer network that connected different kinds of computers. Other similar networks, including NPL, ALOHANET, HLN and CYCLADES, followed closely but were outrun by ARPAnet due to its massive funding.
