    For all intents and purposes Al Gore did invent the internet. He pushed
    the bill for the Government to take and fund the move to move the
    internet out of Government and Research Institutions and open it up to
    everyone. Without that you'd still need to be in the bowels of MIT to
    use the internet.

    For all intents and purposes Al Gore did invent the internet. He pushed
    the bill for the Government to take and fund the move to move the
    internet out of Government and Research Institutions and open it up to
    everyone. Without that you'd still need to be in the bowels of MIT to
    use the internet.
