This Wikia is about the development of the Internet, in the timeline from its earliest beginning, to the present, then to the future. We will discuss all inventions that helped create the Internet. Start with earlier technologies such as the telephone and the computer. Then we have core Internet technologies such as TCP/IP, email, ftp, gopher, Usenet, and the web. Present innovations include the web forum, the wiki, CVS and Subversion, the social bookmarking, and the online game. to future possibilities, such as the development of a self-aware Artificial Intelligence. The Internet will help to greatly accelerate the development of the fields of Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Information Science, Cognitive Science, Robotics, and then strong Artificial General Intelligence (both non-biological and augmented-human) which are already in the process of convergence which will catalyze the advent of the Technological Singularity, possibly within the next 30 to 40 years.

This wiki is also about the inventors. We will discuss the important individuals who were directly involved with the development of the Internet, from Apache to SSH, from Yahoo! to At this Wikia, we will review the major Internet websites.

We will also discuss the bad parts of the Internet: spam, trolls, and hijacks. Various kinds of Malware will be discussed, including but not necessarily limited to: Spyware, Trojans, Dialers, Computer viruses, Botnets, Phishers, Worms, Key Loggers, and numerous other Internet pests. We'll discuss the Anti-malware organizations on the Internet that are dedicated to helping people that are experiencing problems caused by malware on their computers.
