History: Internet (ARPANET)comes from a project initiated by American Advanced Research Project Agency-ARPA in1960s to create a big network for communication between military research computers, and later on some universities which were conducting military research were also connected. As more and more universities from all parts of the world were connected to the network, its characteristics changed to that a international university communication facility, and was taken over by the American National Science Foundations under the name of the Internet.
Development: The internet is a good example of natural growth from below. There is no board of directors or central command authority for the network; from several points of view it manages itself, and can be characterised as un-hierarchical, un-centralised, and unplanned.
problems: Human information right, security and privacy, social moral and democracy, legal and freedom.
