A Short History of the Internet
The Internet was invented in the 1960s by computer scientists working
in America. For many years, only people in universities and people very
interested in computer technology used this new invention.
In 1991, a British computer scientist called Tim Berners-Lee invented
the world wide web.This made it much easier to use the Internet and it
became very popular all over the world. But there was still a problem.The
Internet was so slow!
At the beginning of the 21"^ century, broadband technology made it easier
for people to connect quickly to the Internet. It also made it easier for
people to share information. People wanted to share videos, links and music
on sites likeYouTube and MySpace.

Today we can access the Internet on smart phones, laptops, PCs and tablet
computers.We live online.Websites have become a big part of our lives.We
shop on Amazon and eBay, we talk to friends on Facebook and Twitter, we
listen to music on Spotify and search for information on Google.
What is the future of the Internet? Nobody knows. But one thing we can be
quite sure about. It isn't going to go away!

1 It took eight years to build Tower Bridge in London. It was finished

about the history of the bridge at the Tower Bridge Exhibition.

The Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan in New York opened in

paintings, photographs and drawings.The museum also has a very
big collection of books and films.The museum has some very famous
paintings by Vincent Van Gogh, Pablo Picasso and Claude Monet.
