Al Gore and Internet

Many joke about how Al Gore claimed to have created the Internet. I always defend Al Gore and his role in making the Internet possible. In his role as senator he was part of financing the research that later became the Internet.

Even one of the fathers of Internet, Vint Cerf, is giving Al Gore some credit.

The Vice President [Al Gore] deserves credit for his early recognition of the value of high speed computing and communication and for his long-term and consistent articulation of the potential value of the Internet to American citizens and industry and, indeed, to the rest of the world.
