Who were ten people who had part in the internet's history?

I think you have to start with J Presper Eckert and John Mauchly, the inventors of the Univac Computer. Without that invention, the Internet would not be possible. The Internet and Transmission Control Protocols were initially developed in 1973 by American computer scientist Vinton Cerf as part of a project sponsored by the United States Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) and directed by American engineer Robert Kahn. The Internet began as a computer network of ARPA (ARPAnet) that linked computer networks at several universities and research laboratories in the United States. The World Wide Web was developed in 1989 by English computer scientist Timothy Berners-Lee for the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Of course there are many more contributors to the Internet.
