    Gore to Get Lifetime.....

    .....Award for Internet

    Al Gore may have been lampooned for taking credit in the Internet's development, but organizers of the Webby Awards for online achievements don't find it funny at all.

    Here... just go to the source.

    These two posts on Slashdot made me reconsider my first reaction to blow Gore's "inventing the internet" off, yet again.
    "Taking initiative" in the context of "service in the United States Congress" means supporting legislation. Al Gore did exactly that. He pushed legislation, amog that the High Performance Computing and Communications Act of 1991, which transformed some isolated research networks into what we today call the Internet.

    He saw the potential of the "Information Superhighway" when most of the HAHA GORE INVETED THE INTERNET LOL kids where still shitting their pants.

    He's not taking credit for creating the internet, although people are trying to falsely pin it on him. But as far as the legislative and government side is concerned with the internet, he was the primary drive and power behind it. And considering all of you (and me) are internet addicts, doing silly things like posting on slashdot, I think maybe we owe him a bit of thanks.

    Can anyone back up their arguments up or are they just misinformed?
