> We ought not to let pass unnoticed the impending 20th
> anniversary of the Internet.  The most logical date of
> origin of the Internet is January 1, 1983, when the ARPANET
> officially switched from the NCP protocol to TCP/IP.  Six
> months later, the ARPANET was split into the two subnets
> ARPANET and MILNET, which were connected by Internet
> gateways* (routers).

> The planning for the January 1983 switchover was fully
> documented in Jon Postel in RFC 801.  The week-by-week
> progress of the transition was reported in a series of 15
> RFCs, in the range RFC 842 - RFC 876, by UCLA student David
> Smallberg.
