How do I go about writing a cause and effect essay on the invention of the Internet?

QUESTION
How do I go about writing a cause and effect essay on the invention of the Internet?
I have a few topics to choose from:

• Discovery of electricity
• Dolly the cloned sheep
• Invention of the Internet
• Invention of the computer
• Invention of the television

I was thinking about the invention of the Internet, but I’m really not sure where to start. Also the essay is supposed to be five paragraphs long (seven sentences per paragraph). If anyone had any idea on where to start or some good sources that I could use that would be great. Thank you!

ANSWER
If you cannot think of cause/effect items, work backwards by starting with a number of benefits as the effect and work back to possible causes. For instance, the cause or desire for fast communications had the effect of development of software and telecom networking. The desire for more and fast access of knowledge, drove the development of search engines. You have to think of numerous such items to make up the seven sentences within the paragraphs. Productivity, social interaction, a healthier and richer world (?),telecoms development, networking are all candidates.

Use your first of the 5 paragraphs, to introduce your subject describing what it is, how it came about, when it started, etc., then use the three middle paragraphs to provide the details of the cause/effect items you have chosen and then finish off by one paragraph for the conclusion concerning future developments etc.

Hope this helps.
