Nope.. Gore Didn't Invent The Internet!

Yes, I know that is pretty old. But picking on Gore for claiming to invent the Internet is still funny. Anyway, today I learned something new myself about the massive network we all know and love.

Internet doesn't exactly come from interconnected network, as I could've sworn I was taught. You know, from one of those Computer Science degrees which require a class in Data Structures. Pointers, anyone? The name actually comes from something a little more.. shall we say.. galactic..

Click here to find out the original proposed name for the network now known as The Internet.
