The Internet's beginnings are generally attributed to research conducted in the 1960s and 1970s by the Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency, now known as DARPA.

At Tuesday's county board meeting, former agency director Steve Lukasik and several of his colleagues will be recognized for their work.

The county plans to erect two historical markers at the agency's former headquarters in Rosslyn. One of the markers will be written solely in binary code.
