Al Gore, thank you for the Internet

The Webby Lifetime Achievement Award: Former Vice President Al Gore

Setting the record straight on one of recent history's most persistent political myths, The Webby Awards will present Former Vice President Al Gore with The Webby Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of the pivotal role he has played in the development of the internet over the past three decades. Vint Cerf, widely credited as one of the "fathers of the internet," will present Vice President Gore with the award.

If it were not for Al Gore we would still be in the walled off gardens of Compuserve, AOL, Prodigy, etc.

I love Al Gore, and thanks to his invention, I have a great job.
