    A British guy did NOT invent the Internet.


    The British say a British guy invented the internet in 1992. Untrue! It was hundreds of people at the US Department of Defense, in the Silicon Valley, Universities in the USA, etc. And one British guy making one contribution, is not the same as he invented the internet.


    The truth is, the USA invented the internet decades before the British Tim Berners-Lee wrote html to display web pages. And a number of other online systems like CompuServe, Hyper-G, and Gopher did similar things as the web, before html. So Tim Berners-Lee did "NOT" invent the internet.
