    The Tymnet network was created by Tymshare and was first "booted up" in 1971. In 1976, Tymnet, Inc. was formed as a wholly owned subsidiary of Tymshare. In 1984, McDonnell Douglas bought Tymshare. The network continued as MD Network Systems and Tymshare ceased to exist. Tymnet had several different owners after that until it was finally shut down in 2004.
