Gore and the Internet

For those who care about lies and damn lies, Gore deserves a bit of credit for the internet.
At the Internet Society’s Global INET 2012 conference in Geneva, Switzerland, the description of Gore states: 
“Al Gore, the 45th Vice President of the United States, was a key proponent of sponsoring legislation that funded the expansion of and greater public access to the Internet. Instrumental in helping to create the ‘Information Superhighway,’ Gore was one of the first government officials to recognize that the Internet’s impact could reach beyond academia to fuel educational and economic growth as well.”
