    The internet is well over 16:

    The US Department of Defense started the Internet

    In 1969, the US Department of Defense wanted a communication system that could not be destroyed in the event of an emergency. They linked computers over telephone lines so that if one computer failed to work, the others could still communicate with each other.

    Internet started reaching home computers in basic form in 1983

    What it means is that internet has been brought into peoples homes 16 years ago, but it was used in the late 60's.

    Since when was AOL a good source, especially when I click on number 3 all I see is Starsky and Hutch.

    Look here for a legitimate source:
