The "History of" section needs links![edit]

Please add some relevant links to the history section.

Links can be found in the "History of" article for this subject, in the "History of" category for this subject, or in the corresponding navigation templates. Or you could search for topics on Google - most topics turn blue when added to Wikipedia as internal links.

Internet is the worldwide, publicly accessible network of interconnected computer networks[edit]

That is correct. The uses of the internet are NOT part of the Internet. Just as your refrigerator is not part of the electrical grid (which has a description very similar to the internet's: Electrical grid - an interconnected network for delivering electricity from suppliers to consumers. It consists of generating stations that produce electrical power, high-voltage transmission lines that carry power from distant sources to demand centers, and distribution lines that connect individual customers.) Both the electrical grid and the internet end at their respective plugs.
