About the Author
J. R. Okin is a technology consultant who specializes in systems engineering. His clients have included AT&T Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, Unix International, and the Open Software Foundation. During the dot com boom, Mr. Okin worked as the Director of Software Engineering and Development at a small Internet startup in New York City. He received a bachelor's degree from Vassar College and a master's degree from Cambridge University, both in English Literature.

   The Internet Revolution presents the complete history of the Internet - from its original design and engineering to its initial form as the world's first packet-switched computer network (the ARPANET) to its transformation into a privatized, commercial network and its emergence as today's international networking infrastructure. This book also presents a detailed explanation of how the Internet's technology works, why it works so well, how it is being used, and how it is managed. It also answers the question of why the Internet succeeded in bringing computer networking into the lives of so many people across the globe.
   The Internet Revolution explains:
  • How computers evolved, and how they became the instrument of a revolution.

  • Who designed and built the first computer network, and why it was built.

  • Why computer networking required the invention of a new type of communication system, and how a computer network differs from a telephone network.

  • How the Internet was formed, and how it evolved from a private, experimental network into a public, commercial, global communication infrastructure.

  • What the Internet consists of, how it works, and how it relates to the Web.

  • How email was invented, how it works, and the role it played in transforming the Internet.

  • What cyberspace consists of, how it is used today, and what it promises for how we will communicate, work, and play tomorrow.

  • How and why the technology and management of the Internet fostered a revolution, and the strategies for success that made this possible.
