System that Made Internet Possible Turns 25

The switch suddenly made it possible for small experimental computer networks all over the country to talk to each other -- and that made the Internet possible. The obscure military agency was DARPA -- the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. One of those guys was Vinton Cerf, who is commonly called "The Father of the Internet." (Source:NPR)
