Birth of the Internet & Convenience of Online Shopping

Who doesn’t like comfort?

What do you think about why the world is witnessing new innovations every day?

For the sake of comfort!

The string of inventions started with a motive to bring comfort in life. Whether it’s the light bulb from Thomas Alva Edison or the telephone from Alexander Graham Bell, comfort is what inventions seek.

One such invention was that of the Internet. But, apparently like many other inventions, the Internet has no single inventor. It is something that evolved over time. The first-ever spark of the Internet was given by the United States when they launched the world’s first manmade satellite into orbit, Sputnik, on October 4, 1957. After that, In 1962, a scientist from M.I.T. and ARPA named J.C.R. Licklider proposed a “galactic network” of computers that could talk to one another. Slowly and steadily, more computers were added to the ARPAnet. The scenarios changed completely in 1991, and the network of computers changed into the Internet when a computer programmer in Switzerland named Tim Berners-Lee introduced the World Wide Web.



Since then, the Internet has witnessed many upgrades, and today the world runs on the Internet.

The online shopping that we people around the world use to buy many different things recorded its first-ever retail transaction NetMarket or Internet Shopping Network in 1994. Immediately after, Amazon.com launched its online shopping site in 1995, and eBay was also introduced in 1995.

Online shopping has become so popular that today you can buy and sell almost all types of things throughout the world from the comfort of your homes. The convenience of online shopping has given the world the opportunity to expand their business beyond the boundaries of nations. And those who are too busy earning the bread and luxury have got the way to shop anytime and anywhere.

Today, one can buy small-to-small and big-to-big things in a few clicks and taps. You can get a King-Sized bed delivered to your doorstep and can also use services like online rakhi delivery. It’s literally like making the world a small place. Apart from the source of comfort, online shopping is a great help for those who are unable to walk outside of their homes to buy the things they need. And it has also been a help for people around the world to celebrate their occasions and festivals.

We all love to celebrate with our loved ones, but there have always been the situations of not being able to be with them. For instance: those people who move to a new city or country and those brave soldiers who are sacrificing their everything for the pride of the county, they hardly get to celebrate with their families. That’s where the convenience of online shopping showed that inventions also help to strengthen the relationships.

With online gifting portals in the scene, sending birthday gifts around the world and buying silver rakhi online to commemorate festivals like Raksha Bandhan, online shopping has got us all covered.


Thank You, Internet!
