Been poking around trying to find what organization or individual coined the
term "Internet" and also trying to find out why the term is always
capitalized. I keep coming up with a lot of information on the origin
stories of the network and technology (i.e. ARPAnet) but nothing that
pinpoints the dawn of the umbrella term "Internet". 

Thoughts? Links? Literature? Would be greatly appreciated.
