The World Wide Web, or as Old Woodhead calls it, the Internet.

I have a vote and I'm not afraid to use it!


When asked to describe what distinguished him from his challenger for the Democratic presidential nomination, Senator Bill Bradley of New Jersey, Gore replied (in part): “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.”

To be fair to Gore, his statement referenced what he had done in Congress. The Internet was the commercialization of the work done at DOD, and by most accounts, Gore’s efforts had some impact. He was the prime sponsor of the 1991 High-Performance Computing and Communications Act, generally known as the Gore bill, which allocated $600 million for high-performance computing. Gore, who waged a two-year battle to get the bill passed, popularized the term “the Information Superhighway.”

The Gore legislation helped fund the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, where the Mosaic Web browser was first developed by a team of programmers that included Netscape founder Marc Andreessen. While it is sometimes difficult to pinpoint the impact of federal funding, Andreessen said Gore’s bill made a difference during a 2000 interview with the Industry Standard: “If it had been left to private industry, it wouldn’t have happened, at least, not until years later.”



I was an adult while this happened, with some extraordinarily tech-genius friends. Yes, I can attest to the nascent internet from crude protocols to the first web browser. Insofar as the Gore legislation funded the groundwork for a mass-available internet, he can take at least some credit for creating it.

There will be fire and brimstone and Earth will be destroyed!... in several billion years!----------------------------------------- "Well, so long Earth. Thanks for the air... and what-not." -Philip J. Fry


A good question on the topic might be "Has having the internet made your life better? Has it made society or the world better??"

But then, out here on the interweb pathways -not unlike driving- one is subjected to people that are impaired and you have to skip on past them *cough JSF cough* to get anywhere...


The medical/technical information and availability of resources and communication has undoubtedly made my life better, but dealing with idiots and knowing what I now know about the nature of humanity has undoubtedly made my mental health worse, and inter-netting likely made me more sedentary than I should be.

I think the answer to those questions is a personal one.

For me... it's a 60/40, 60 for the better, I guess.
