As I was reading Dan Brown’s Angels and Demons, I noticed that Vittoria Vetra claimed that Europe’s CERN created the Internet, not the U.S. Government as I was always led to believe. CERN supports (obviously) Vittoria Vetra’s claim that they are the creators—not the “arrogant Americans”.
So give me the Straight Dope. CERN or the U.S.?
(and, for the love of God, please, no horrible ATl Gore jokes)
