The Internet is a global system of interconnected computer networks that use the standard Internet protocol suite (often called TCP/IP, although not all applications use TCP) to serve billions of users worldwide. It is a network of networks that consists of millions of private, public, academic, business, and government networks, of local to global scope, that are linked by a broad array of electronic, wireless and optical networking technologies. The Internet carries an extensive range of information resources and services, such as the inter-linked hypertext documents of the World Wide Web (WWW) and the infrastructure to support email.

News to me was finding this article The Internet Was Actually Invented in 1934 [Video] on The Inquisitr.  The concept of the Internet was invented by a Belgian Information Expert named Paul Otlet.  Vinton Cerf put together a system for routing data in packet s around the globe called TCP/IP and is often referred to as the Father of the Internet.
