The Internet can be described as an inter-connection of computers using the World Wide Web. The Internet is thus an information super-highway. This means that one can access information that is stored in a server located thousands of miles from his location. Though difficult to pinpoint a specific time and happening that gave birth to the Internet as we know it, Ellsworth & Ellsworth (1994) have traced the origins of the Internet back to the United States in the 1960's. Following the Soviet Union's launch of the Sputnik into the space in the late 1950's, the then United States of America president, Dwight D. Eisenhower ordered that there be established an Advanced Research Project Agency (ARPA), to counter the threat that the Soviets posed with their new launch.
