Al Gore got knighted?
It would be hard to explain to people that there are many parts to the Interweb.
Hey, could you even explain gopher to most people? And how it was different than the web?
*sigh* I miss gopher.
:-) No, not Al Gore... Tim Berners-Lee
interesting, you follow-up a comment about misinformation
with more misinformation of your own.
as you well know, many people think the internet
exists only since WWW. but it never hurts to point out
USENET, ftp etc etc. you hardly did.
the gist of what Al said related to the "modern internet",
redirecting the cost & duties of maintaining the backbone to
companies instead of largely the US government & colleges.
I don't have to tell you how often he is
quoted out of context on this.
but, its too late to help him now.
funny how little precision there is on such matters, eh?
So what exactly is the misinformation that I wrote in the post?
