This page is just an abridged version of the regular Wikipedia article. But its locked so no one can change it. I doubt anyone who would read this article would fully understand what its talking about.

"The Internet was created by scientists in the United States of America who wanted to keep communicating even if the [telephone network]? was damaged by [nuclear war]?. They designed it so well that even the government? decided to use it for the same purpose." -- I think this is not exactly correct. I think that the government originally paid the scientists to create a way to communicate that would work even after a war, and the scientists began to use it after they created it.


Internet created at CERN[change source]

Are You sure that the Internet was created at CERN? Or maybe in Köln? ;)

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet: "The core networks forming the Internet started out in 1969 as the ARPANET, created by the United States Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA)."

WWW was created at CERN about 25 years later. ;)

what a lode of rogan i think you are wrong!



Sardinia[change source]

I read the guy who invented world wide web invented it on the island of Sardinia, the second largest island of Italy after Sicily (which has a bridge to it now). CERN had or has a research facility there. IBM had its first "virtual archaeology tour" a database of images, about the same time as Apple's Quicktime went 3D.

Grammar Check...[change source]

"The Internet [__] the worldwide network of interconnected computer networks" What word goes in the brackets? ;)

It's a lot better than "The Internet is a series of tubes"
