The early development of tcp/ip began in 1973, and the cutover from
the ARPANET protocol NCP to the Internet protocol TCP/IP was in
January 1983. Thus the coming new year 2003 marks the 30th anniversary
of the beginnings of tcp/ip and the 20th anniversary of the cutover to
tcp/ip from NCP on the ARPANET and the split between ARPANET and
MILNET in 1983.
Indeed 2003 is a time to celebrate as an important anniversary of the
birth of the internet.

P.S. A while ago I wrote a paper about the tcp/ip digest which documents
the period of the cutover from NCP to tcp/ip.
That paper is online at http://www.ais.org/~ronda/new.papers/tcpdraft.txt
I also have a paper about the early development of tcp/ip that
is online at http://www.columbia.edu/~rh120/other/birth_internet.txt
