Though the computer was invented in the 1940s and the internet in the 1960s, it was not until the communication protocols that made the internet popular and widely used.
Since the invention of the protocols that are used by computers to connect to a network, the world of the internet has evolved, making it one of the most widely used means of communication today.
Instead of a single inventor, the internet was developed by many people over many years. With the birth of the internet came great possibilities for many entrepreneurs and people with great minds. They went beyond the invention of the internet, and changed the way how the world sees technology with their inventions and ideas.
And at the same time, technology, computers, mobile and IT develop in a faster rate than they were ever before.
