Internet was discovered long before this.
(In 1965 a research project, by the Rand cooperation, for a network that
could survive a nuclear attack. Sponsored by DARPA.
These is the real creators of the Internet technology. Not Unix hackers.)
It was the realization of www (CERN) that spawned the movement toward the  
Internet.
So the year in question is about 1987.
