Internet Day - October 29

 Could you live one day without the Internet? Funny that we once lived without him and got along very well (at least we believed we would get along) and today we are not able to get along without him even one day. We need the internet for work, school, getting along on the roads, communicating with each other, playing and even for falling in love. There are countless things we owe the internet for!

The internet is everywhere. In computers, in smart cameras that follow us, in our TV, in phones and tablets and even in smart watches.

Internet Day is meant to celebrate the peak of computing and communication technology that has burst into our lives in the last decades of the last century and has since evolved until we became addicted.

The first letters ever transmitted across the Internet, which included only two computers, were "L" and "O". This is all the media they managed to transfer before the network crashed, and they had to reboot it to fix it. It happened on October 29, 1969 when Leonard Kleinrock of the University of California at Los Angeles and Charlie Klein of Stanford University tried to broadcast the word LOGIN.

The term Internet is an abbreviation of the term "Interconnected Networks", which describes a group of computer networks connected to each other.

Initially, the Internet was an initiative of the US Department of Defense. But due to international pressure, the United States was forced in the early 1990s to relinquish its control of the Internet. Today the Internet is run primarily by a number of international bodies made up of representatives from all over the world including academics, government, commerce and private citizens.

Each state can apply its laws to bodies and individuals operating in it online. Some countries like China, Syria and Iran are using this ability to restrict their citizens' access to the network.

In North Korea the Internet is allowed to be used only with special permission, and is used mainly for government purposes and by foreigners. As you can imagine, very few people are allowed to use the World Wide Web.

Most people and institutions use online services that are provided for free through an intranet (a private computer communications network, used for the internal activities of an organization that operates on Internet technology, to which access is only allowed within users within the organization) known as Kwangmyong.

How to celebrate Internet Day?

Keep using the internet as you like and owe, just dedicate some thoughts to the contribution it has made to our lives and to the one that once did not exist. Do not take the expensive internet for granted and whenever you get upset that you do not have Wi-Fi reception or the internet is slow, remember that it once was not at all. We would communicate with each other only through talking on the phone or face to face, sending letters in the mail that would arrive after weeks and developing our photos in print and arranging in an album.

October 29th is Wall Street Crash of 1929- Black Tuesday
