1969 – The first-ever computer-to-computer link is established on ARPANET, the precursor to the Internet.

The first message on the ARPANET was sent by UCLA student programmer Charley Kline, at 10:30 pm, from Boelter Hall 3420. Kline transmitted from the university’s SDS Sigma 7 Host computer to the Stanford Research Institute’s SDS 940 Host computer. The message text was the word login; the l and the o letters were transmitted, but the system then crashed. Hence, the literal first message over the ARPANET was "lo".
About an hour later, having recovered from the crash, the SDS Sigma 7 computer effected a full login.
The first permanent ARPANET link was established on 21 November 1969, between the IMP (router) at UCLA and the IMP at the Stanford Research Institute.
By 5 December 1969, the entire four-node network, adding University of California, Santa Barbara and The University of Utah, was established.

One question about that day in 1969, 1SG (Join to see). Was Vice President Al Gore there? He did invent the Internet, after all. :-)

Oddly enough, CW5 (Join to see) he is not mentioned in any history I have on the subject. Perplexing.
