Another myth that needs to be busted.

The High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991 was the
legislation that enabled the world wide web to happen. And it was called the
Gore bill, since Al was the one who introduced it. Without this bill, the
www may not have happened. So, while Al fibbed when he said "During my
service in the United States Congress I took the initiative in creating the
internet", he was not that far from being responsible for opening it up to
the world.

Colin,

Little known fact.... when you search the internet from inside the US, it
filters out all the non-American facts. The owners of the internet would
hate to confuse those who are geographically challenged :-)
