This African- American female inventor alleges that she is the Inventor of Internet 2 or today’s modern INTERNET . For those of you who do not know what Internet 2 is or have never heard of it – this inventor who is a retired science teacher and entrepreneur has a different story to tell other than the one that you may have heard . The Internet 2 was invented when the National Science Foundation commissioned the Merit Networks along with others to commercialize the NSFnet . While science and technology has grown and changed over the years so has the Internet morphing from its previous structure into a network that now extends over the globe , making the world smaller . The inventor alleges that her contributions made the difference but she has been left out . Read her blogs to learn more .
The NSFNET or National Science Foundation Net was actually a holding place for what had basically become a defunct telecom network based on the Arpanet . This Internet or what some refer to as Internet 1 had existed from the beginnings of the earliest telecom communications from about 1969 through 1989 when those networks mostly referred to as the Internetting Projects were retired and basically became what was called the NSFnet .
That structure was too rigid and limited to host social media such as Twitter , Facebook , and Instagram . Because of this woman’s vision regarding the use of cyberspace as an alternate marketplace – she alleges that the National Science Foundation used her proprietary information to change the prior telecom structures adapting them for her ideas on Commercialization and thus the new Internet that we know today came into existence . Yet she has not been acknowledged or compensated by the U.S. government which benefits greatly from her contributions .
In 1990 , Hartman a retired science teacher presented to the federal government her ideas of running a business from home using telecommunications , an excerpt present here The rest is internet history but thus far not in the internet archive . The Information Superhighway as nicknamed by Al Gore ( whom some credit as having invented the Internet )really took off around 1994 and morphed into what we now call the “Internet” .The Inventor alleges that she has been intentionally discriminated against because of the tremendous success of the invention which has led to trillions of dollars being added into the economy – the nod going to corporations .
The tremendous growth and expansion of the modern day internet or what some refer to as Internet 2 was caused by a transformation in the structure of telecom and how it works . Based on the Hartman model of Accessing Accessibility which is the name that she gave to her proposals – Hartman showed the government that by placing transactions such as the transfer of goods , services ,and , information online would grow Commerce . This inventor was the first to realize that using cyberspace which is latent in computers as an alternate marketplace where transactions could occur would not only be beneficial but profitable . As other aspects of our culture has developed , so has the Internet for the past 25 years but Ms. Hartman has been given no credit only the tech industry .
Hartman says that it denied her funding , but copied her ideas to transform the defunct telecom networks into what is now a successful Internet which is continuing to expand . Although this woman’s contributions are critical to the development of the Internet – being responsible for ‘ how it got so big? ‘ yet she is being squeezed out of the industry. – She filed May 2014 in the Supreme Court for what she alleges are her intellectual property rights . The Supreme Court upheld what the inventor alleges is a flawed opinion by the Appeals Court for the Patent Office to deny patent as she alleges that there are documents and witnesses that should be reviewed as indefiniteness is not really characteristic of the structure which was fully transformed and depends on the use of equipment .That opinion is here 13-1070.opinion.3-6-2013.1
There is still a lot to learn about Telecom history .
