Admittedly, I haven't used it since that class.  laugh

However, it is the foundation of the internet.  shifty

The internet is not a big truck okay, it's not something you can just dump something on, it's a series of tubes

Behold!  The Internet!


And I believe you CAN dump things on it.  However, heavier items might crush the internet.

In all truth, the internet is based on the hardware because the operating systems are all designed to talk to one another independent of their origin. The Linux being "the foundation of the internet" claim was just for lolz since the internet was technically birthed in the form of several Cold War military computers as a method of preventing the whole network from being taken out when the bombs started flying, so it kind of pre-dates even Linux and UNIX as far as I can remember from class/etc.

right, and the first technical "OS" was IBM's platform. which predates almost everything. again i think. because IBM's system could really do nothing more than read/write to floppy's  and some mathematical equations.

Edit: just looked it as i was curious, partially correct. the generally considered "first OS" belonged to general motors. they designed it for a IBM 701.

Yeah, that sounds right. IBM was hardware almost exclusively. There's as much myth and legend surrounding the origin of computers and networking as fact.  laugh

No the first example of internet communication is the first human language. Using the same set of words and letters to communicate like on the internet using the same protocols and servers to communicate.

Every definition of "internet" I can find has the word "computer" in it, so I don't think the human language qualifies as an "internet".

The only exception to my definition search is some website from the University of Wisconsin which defines internet as "a network of networks", but then doesn't bother to define "network".  That's like me defining "internet" as "a thurmomdapoplatic pronathalic of gretchindaflication".  (note that this definition is now on the internet, so it therefore must be true.)

The internet is just a network of humans using computers to communicate with each other. But if humans do the same thing minus the computer part it is close enough for government work.

I once found Chuck Norris on the internet.  I believe that he was keeping it down after delivering a roundhouse kick.

the Ethernet is the connection between computers, the internet is the mass connection of computers through the large hubs that actually contain most of the data(words, videos, pictures, codes, et cetera) that we view daily, as well as that which we don't and that which we can not view without some extra tools.

Ethernet is just one of many networking structures. Just because it's the most common (in our homes), doesn't make it the sole type of connection between two computers and therefore a word that can be used in that context and given that definition.

The word you're looking for is "intranet." Notice the subtle difference.
