Who Invented the Internet?

I’ve been having such fun with the DS106 assignment database. After going through almost every single assignment and having brief flashes of inspiration on at least half of them, I decided to jump in with another silly one.

Today’s assignment is “Patty Pioneer.” To quote the directions, “Simply put, this assignment involves editing a picture of any Computer Pioneer so that it looks like they are eating/about to eat/holding a burger or similar types of fast food.”

Seeing as I know just about nothing about computer pioneers, I decided to go with the first thought that popped into my little head: Al Gore.  Because, you know, Al Gore invented the internet.*
He seems like the kind of guy who would like to eat healthy.  What’s healthier than a Subway sub?  I mean, those folks over at The Biggest Loser like it, and inventing the internet is hard work.  You deserve a great big sandwich, Al.
*I totally know that Al Gore didn’t invent the internet, but I do like to perpetuate the myth.  If you want the real story, check out Snopes.  Al Gore WAS influential in the popularity of the internet, so I think he counts as a computer pioneer.

  1. Nope, I disagree, it’s definitely Al Gore-he is the mastermind behind the internet. And all that internet-ing has made him hungry! Maybe he’ll go have a sandwich with Bill Gates.
