Your article just
confirms what I have been saying. Your article itself points to ARPANET.
Of course almost 20 years later it starts talking about Cern.
public demonstration of ARPANET In late 1971, Larry Roberts at DARPA decided
that people needed serious motivation to get things going. In October 1972 there
was to be an International Conference on Computer Communications, so Larry asked
Bob Kahn at BBN to organize a public demonstration of the ARPANET. It took Bob
about a year to get everybody far enough along to demonstrate a bunch of applications
on the ARPANET. The idea was that we would install a packet switch and a Terminal
Interface Processor or TIP in the basement of the Washington Hilton Hotel, and actually
let the public come in and use the ARPANET, running applications all over the U.S
....The demo was a roaring success, much to the surprise of the people at AT&T
who were skeptical about whether it would work. Source: Vinton Cerf’
