The first computer connected to another computer was in 1965.
In 1960 some visionary thinkers came up with this lovely concept that is so apart of many people’s lives today, though it was originally going to be used for scientific and militaristic fields. In 1962, J.C.R. Licklider of MIT proposed the idea for global networking for computers, went to the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency and then onto developing it. In 1965 Lawrence Roberts of MIT connected two computers, one from Massachusetts and the other from California over dial-up. It was inadequate, but showed that it was possible.
Roberts then moved on to develop his plan for ARPANET, now known as the internet the next year and it was officially brought online in 1969 under a contract with the Advanced Research Projects Agency. The first computers that were connected were four major computers at universities in the south west, specifically UCLA, Stanford Research Institute, UCSB, and the University of Utah.
