National Internet Day is celebrated on October 29 and honors the great invention of mankind. We cannot imagine a day without the World Wide Web. Mail, social networks, entertainment resources, news feeds are an important part of our lives. But once no one could have imagined that all this would happen in the near future!
The first Internet connection was made in 1969, 2 months after Armstrong’s flight to the moon. National Day had great support from netizens, it was not possible to refuse the opportunity to celebrate the holiday. The Internet became public only in 1991, and to this day it is expanding its horizons.
Surprisingly, many countries cannot enjoy all the benefits of the Internet due to a complete or partial government ban. China, North Korea, Cuba, Iran, Syria restrict citizens in free access to the network. According to statistics, 58% of the population uses the Internet.
A lot of people are involved in its development. For example, “computer Johnny Appleseed” – as the population calls him, was the pioneer of the Internet. He gave a structural understanding of the network even before its inception. And there are enough computer scientists like him!
