Candy Land Essay

A company spends many years building a name for themselves. They work hard 
building trust in the public as a whole and from their customers. In the past a company 
would have been protected against another company posing as them to sell a product or 
service in the real world. Now things have become even more confusing. In this day and 
age Individuals also have to worry about people stealing their name, and posing as them 
in the digital realm. As the web grew, and the digital world has become more of our daily 
lives, one could argue that an individual's digital presence is almost as important as their

At this time a man by the name of Klinerock was was working on the idea of 
packet sharing over computer networks. For this reason UCLA was chosen as the first 
node to be set up on the ARPANET. In September 1969 the first host computer was 
connected at UCLA. At the same time Stanford Research Institute under the leadership of 
Doug Engelbart had the Augmentation of Human Intellect project. Part of this project 
was an early hypertext system called NLS. For this reason Stanford was chosen as the 
second network node. A month after Stanford Research Institute was added to the 
network the first host to host message was sent from UCLA to Stanford. Also around this 
time two additional nodes were added one at UC Santa Barbara and one at the University 
of Utah. By the end of 1969 four computers were connected to the newly formed network 
and the start of the Internet network was up and running.  Over the following years many 
more computers were added to the network. In 1970 Network Working Group finished 
the first ARPANET Host to Host protocol.  This was called the Network Control 
Protocol. Users were able to start developing applications between 1971 and 1972 once 
the Network Control Protocol was completed and implemented at all of the ARPANET 
sites.  It was in 1972 that the first email application was developed by Ray Tomlinson. 
Email was then the network's largest application that was used for over a decade. This 
was the precursor to the type of activity that we see on the World Wide Web today.  It 

was the first type of people to people traffic.  ARPANET was what lead to today's 
Internet.   
The internet is an open architecture network.  In an open architecture network 
many individual networks can be developed and designed separately and have their own 
unique users and processes but can still interact with each other. In 1973 Bob Metcalf 
with Xerox developed Ethernet technology. This became the predominate network 
technology. From here as the technology rolled into the 1980’s there was widespread 
development of LAN networks and also in personal computers that consumers had in 
their homes.  As a result a major shift occurred in how the computers were being used in 
homes, and began to drive how the internet was used. As more and more individuals 
began accessing the internet people began to want an easier way to access sites. 
Originally individuals had to remember a numeric address to access hosts that had been 
set up online. As more and more hosts came online they began to assign names to the 
hosts that users could use to access them, so it was easier for individuals to remember 
how to access them. Hence the domain name system was started.  So by 1985 the internet 
was well established, and also the grab for domain names had started.  (Brief History of 
the Internet) 
Originally since the internet was not used by many people companies were able to
