Too Long; Didn't Read

Initial concepts of wide area networking originated in several computer science laboratories in the United States, United Kingdom, and France. The ARPANET project led to the development of protocols for internetworking, in which multiple separate networks could be joined into a network of networks. The Internet's takeover of the global communication landscape was almost instant in historical terms: it only communicated 1% of the information flowing through two-way telecommunications networks in the year 1993, already 51% by 2000, and more than 97% of telecommunicated information by 2007.
