Abstract

Looks at the beginning of the e‐commerce boom and its worldwide growth, which all began after the Soviet Union launched the Sputnik in 1957. Discusses the first electronic mail transfer between machines in July 1970. Gives interesting pointers to how various (now everyday) techniques were employed. Closes by stating the Web, in 1993, accounted for 0.5% of Internet traffic — announcing that the Web and its cohorts had arrived.
