International Internet Day is celebrated globally on October 29 every year. International Internet Day is celebrated to commemorate a momentous day in the history of telecommunications and technology.

In 1969, on this day first electronic message which was transmitted from one computer to another. At that time, Internet was known as ARPANET (Advanced Research Projects Agency Network). This was the year of 1969 when Charley Kline, a student programmer at the UCLA transmitted the first ever message on 29th of October in 1969.

According to Times Now, Charley Kline, working under the supervision of Professor Leonard Kleinrock, transmitted a message from the computer housed at the UCLA to a computer positioned at the Stanford Research Institute’s computer.

The two computers, one at the UCLA was the SDS Sigma 7 Host computer and the receiver was the SDS 940 Host at the Stanford Research Institute. The message was a text message comprising the word ‘login’. But as it would transpire only the letter L and O could be transmitted across, because following the initial transmission the system collapsed and the transmission crashed.

The first International Internet Day was celebrated on October 29, 2005. It is a chance to celebrate the people who helped build the internet

Every year, there are various conferences, events and of course online celebrations where people share their own fun facts about the internet and also discuss key issues like freedom of speech on the internet, data tax, etc.
