Very interesting website covering the ten men who are credited with the development of "the Internet."

Maybe he should be....from wiki...



Gore was one of the Atari Democrats who were given this name due to their "passion for technological issues, from biomedical research and genetic engineering to the environmental impact of the "greenhouse effect."[32] On March 19, 1979 he became the first member of Congress to appear on C-SPAN.[48] During this time, Gore co-chaired the Congressional Clearinghouse on the Future with Newt Gingrich.[49] In addition, he has been described as having been a "genuine nerd, with a geek reputation running back to his days as a futurist Atari Democrat in the House. Before computers were comprehensible, let alone sexy, the poker-faced Gore struggled to explain artificial intelligence and fiber-optic networks to sleepy colleagues."[32][50] Internet pioneers Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn noted that, "as far back as the 1970s, Congressman Gore promoted the idea of high speed telecommunications as an engine for both economic growth and the improvement of our educational system. He was the first elected official to grasp the potential of computer communications to have a broader impact than just improving the conduct of science and scholarship [...] the Internet, as we know it today, was not deployed until 1983. When the Internet was still in the early stages of its deployment, Congressman Gore provided intellectual leadership by helping create the vision of the potential benefits of high speed computing and communication.
Gore introduced the Supercomputer Network Study Act of 1986.[51] He also sponsored hearings on how advanced technologies might be put to use in areas like coordinating the response of government agencies to natural disasters and other crises."[52]
As a Senator, Gore began to craft the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991 (commonly referred to as "The Gore Bill") after hearing the 1988 report Toward a National Research Network submitted to Congress by a group chaired by UCLA professor of computer science, Leonard Kleinrock, one of the central creators of the ARPANET (the ARPANET, first deployed by Kleinrock and others in 1969, is the predecessor of the Internet).[53][54][55] The bill was passed on December 9, 1991 and led to the National Information Infrastructure (NII) which Gore referred to as the "information superhighway."[56]

bunch of political hoo ha, and Cerf must've benefited from the bill(s) introduced.

Clinton and Gore tore down as much as they built up, technologically.

Inventor of World Wide Web warns of threat to internet

September 27, 2014 6:44 PM

London (AFP) - The British inventor of the World Wide Web warned on Saturday that the freedom of the internet is under threat by governments and corporations interested in controlling the web.



Tim Berners-Lee, a computer scientist who invented the web 25 years ago, called for a bill of rights that would guarantee the independence of the internet and ensure users' privacy.
"If a company can control your access to the internet, if they can control which websites they go to, then they have tremendous control over your life," Berners-Lee said at the London "Web We Want" festival on the future of the internet.
"If a Government can block you going to, for example, the opposition's political pages, then they can give you a blinkered view of reality to keep themselves in power."
"Suddenly the power to abuse the open internet has become so tempting both for government and big companies."
Berners-Lee, 59, is director of the World Wide Web Consortium, a body which develops guidelines for the development of the internet.
He called for an internet version of the "Magna Carta", the 13th century English charter credited with guaranteeing basic rights and freedoms.
Concerns over privacy and freedom on the internet have increased in the wake of the revelation of mass government monitoring of online activity following leaks by former US intelligence contractor Edward Snowden.
A ruling by the European Union to allow individuals to ask search engines such as Google to remove links to information about them, called the "right to be forgotten", has also raised concerns over the potential for censorship.
"There have been lots of times that it has been abused, so now the Magna Carta is about saying...I want a web where I'm not spied on, where there's no censorship," Berners-Lee said.
The scientist added that in order to be a "neutral medium", the internet had to reflect all of humanity, including "some ghastly stuff".
"Now some things are of course just illegal, child pornography, fraud, telling someone how to rob a bank, that's illegal before the web and it's illegal after the web," Berners-Lee added.

in 1974 NYC HS was introduce one of the 1st computer course. Paper flow charts & instructors / teachers w/ 17 letter vocabulary turned me off so I decide to take
Auto , Printing, Wood, Electrical, shops which carried me thru my life style. No regrets . If used for the good of man kind it is a great tool.

my high school introduced the 1st computer course (sounds like the same curricula) around 1971-2, my cousin took it. For me, I went into Math, and a friend introduced me to game programming (if I had the intellect I could have made a L O T of money doing that) which got my interest going. That turned into a 37 year career in that or related fields. Not for the home, but the first "personal" type computing at school... that is, I could personally write the program and execute in "real time"... was on an interface not much different that that shown in the picture

time for a new internet

spread spectrum, low power, unlicensed, nodes spreading across the nation.

it's happening now, eventually big brother will come after them, but until then....

apparently there are part 97 devices for which opensource and independent routing systems are being, and have been, developed allowing OTA radio-based neighborhood networks to be deployed.

through this a completely separate "internet" is forming. One that is not carrier based.

it's not completely secure at the moment, other than security-by-obscurity, but that too will happen.
