They had to figure out what to do on their own. Nevertheless, somehow an experimental network went on the air in December 1969 with four nodes: at UCLA, UCSB, SRI, and the University of Utah. These four were chosen because all had a large number of ARPA contracts, and all had different and completely incompatible host computers (just to make it more fun). The network grew quickly as more IMPs were delivered and installed; it soon spanned the United States. Figure 1-27 shows how rapidly the ARPANET grew in the first 3 years.

4. Bad timing. Bad technology. Bad implementations. Bad politics. Bad Timing First let us look at reason one: bad timing. The time at which a standard is established is absolutely critical to its success. T. has a theory of standards that he calls the apocalypse of the two elephants, which is illustrated in Fig. 1-23. Figure 1-23. The apocalypse of the two elephants. This figure shows the amount of activity surrounding a new subject. When the subject is first discovered, there is a burst of research activity in the form of discussions, papers, and meetings.

A protocol, in contrast, is a set of rules governing the format and meaning of the packets, or messages that are exchanged by the peer entities within a layer. Entities use protocols to implement their service definitions. They are free to change their protocols at will, provided they do not change the service visible to their users. In this way, the service and the protocol are completely decoupled. In other words, services relate to the interfaces between layers, as illustrated in Fig. 1-19. In contrast, protocols relate to the packets sent between peer entities on different machines.
