Internet & Networking "It's an urban legend that the government launched the Internet. The myth is that the Pentagon created the Internet to keep its communications lines up even in a nuclear strike. The truth is a more interesting story about how innovation happens - and about how hard it is to build successful technology companies even once the government gets out of the way."

Don't be silly. Nobody invented the Internet, it just came about from random chance and continual evolution. There were many proto-internets inhabiting cyberspace and this just happened to be the one that survived ;)
