Computers speak to one another and send information back and forth, which is accomplished, by sending and receiving electronic impulses and decoding them into messages. In order to communicate with one another the computers are linked up in a network. They are then able to access information from thousands of other computers.

The vision of the Internet that would revolutionize the computer and communications belonged to JCR Licklider of MIT (Comer 22).
