Impact - The Internet Today
"This ARPA program has created no less than a revolution in computer technology and has been one of the most successful projects ever undertaken by ARPA.
The full impact of the technical changes set in motion by this project may not be understood for many years."
- ARPANET Completion Report
"The Internet has affected every aspect of our lives - education, business, commerce, entertainment, the list goes on and on. It has been a democratizing agent, in terms of giving everybody access to the information that’s out there. It’s been a terrific boom socially, commercially, et cetera. That’s a discussion we could have forever."
- Leonard Kleinrock, 3/13/13
It was only a matter of time until something bigger and better came along: the World Wide Web. Ultimately, the ARPANET’s greatest impacts were the Internet and its numerous effects on modern culture, society, and economy.
