It's funny... I took a networking class a few years ago, and the professor was a researcher on the ARPANET project. In one class we were discussing some of the research, and the transition of the technology from a military/educational project into a commercial communications system, when he said "You know, technically Al Gore did..."
Apparently Al Gore helped get the funding business interests to convert the project from an educational one to something that would be open and accessible to everyone. He also authored and sponsored the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991 which provided the research to develop Mosaic and set up some of the infrastructure of the modern Internet.
The best way to learn anything, is to question everything.

Al Gore said he invented it...and a politician would never lie to his constituents...therefore, he must have invented it.

Blackle is like someone who shouts out: "Great news, every one! I have just devised a way to extract heat energy from the thousands of gas lights used in our city streets!"
Only to be told that no cities use gas lights on their streets, any more...
I always wonder about 'saving energy' (not in a monetary sense) when energy can neither be created nor destroyed. Are the people who request us to save energy talking about saving it into storage units or facilities?
