Is it true Al Gore invented the internet (or should I post this under Jokes)...?
He claimed he was part of the Senate committee that helped form the World Wide Web, however, he was still in law school when the idea was being kicked around. Read more about it here
actually that is a common misconception..
the fact is... I invented the internet...
Re: Re: Who Invented the Internet?

Blimey Henyman, they must have a spell checker at school then huh?
thats only a few pages of the report
all of it

To settle this asinine claim once and for all:
"Al Gore never made that claim. His actual words were 'During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet.'
Gore took the credit because he held the hearings, wrote and sponsored the legislation which expanded the Internet from the Arpanet of the 70's into the Internet of today. It was much the same way a politician takes credit for building a road or an airport without doing any of the physical labor.
Robert Kahn and Vinton Cerf, the acknowledged Fathers of the Internet, wrote,
'The fact of the matter is that Gore was talking about and promoting the Internet long before most people were listening. We feel it is timely to offer our perspective. As far back as the 1970s Congressman Gore promoted the idea of high speed telecommunications as an engine for both economic growth and the improvement of our educational system. He was the first elected official to grasp the potential of computer communications to have a broader impact than just improving the conduct of science and scholarship.'
While the Vice President may have chosen his words poorly, he was instrumental in the creation of the Internet."
