The internet as we know it is only 15 years old but the story behind it and how it all started goes a bit longer back than that, around the end of the 70`s to early 80`s for military use. I remember when we first got the internet at our house and my parents set a time zone on my surfing because it was too expensive back then. I was only allowed to surf between 1 in the afternoon until about 8 in the evening and then it automatically went offline. It got me quite frustrated but today things are different, thank god. Now I enjoy the luxury of high speed broadband (damn, hated dial-up and sites taking forever to load) and at a very cheap price too so I can surf 24/7 without anyone complaining at all. The internet rocks, I am an addict and not ashamed to admit it.

I always thought "World Wide Web" sounded idiotic. It`s always been the internet to me and I`ve been around since the beginning of the WWWs. Oh, those were the days....when it was exciting if a page loaded in under 30 seconds. Good times.

it`s older than 15. Like, early 1980`s it was adopted for military use. I did a project on this last year.

The internet as we "see" it was born 15 years ago. Intranets were the birth of the internet. I think it was funded by military, and developed at a university in the late 70`s.

Forgive me if I do not bake it a cake, it was around years and years ago, but it was not used by the public so it was not called the www, just the web. It was used in the war (not sure what one, probebly the cold war) to send e-mails in a silent way that nobody could overhear. Likt text really.
