Dear Amy: Where did the "net" come from in the first place? - Michael, Central City, IA
Dear Michael: The "net," also called the Internet, started in the 1970s when a bunch of computer scientists developed ways to link computers through networks and talk a common language. What we call the Internet is really a whole lot of smaller networks connected by some major paths making up a worldwide network. You can learn more about how the Internet evolved by reading "A Short History of the Internet" at http:// w3.aces.uiuc.edu/ AIM/ SCALE/ nethistory.html or by visiting the "Hobbes' Internet Timeline" at www.zakon.org/robert/internet/timeline.
