About International Internet Day

International Internet Day is celebrated worldwide every year on 29 October. Since 2005, the day has been celebrated to commemorate a momentous day in the history of telecommunications and technology: the sending of the first electronic message—the characters ‘L’ and ‘O’ of “LOGIN”—from one computer (in UCLA) to another (in Stanford) in 1969, by Charley Kline, a student programmer at the UCLA.
