Around 1995, connectivity (with connectivity in this paper is meant: having the possibility to connect to some public computing network such as the Internet) wasn't part of common life. People used to communicate with one another by means of letters, telegraphy and telephone. With the introduction of computers this gradually changed. First some computers were connected to create a network called ArpaNet, initiated by American military and educational institutions. Later on, in the nineties, the Internet was formed out of the former ArpaNet, connecting computers to each other worldwide, creating a huge network of computers.
