In the U.S., the first permanent ARPANET link is established between UCLA and SRI machines at Stanford. The machines are connected over a 50Kbps connection.  This was not the first attempt to connect the machines. An earlier attempt failed when the SRI system crashed after typing the “L” and “O” of the login command. Many will regard this moment as the birth of the internet.
