i was taught that the web was the result of the networking of computers at universtiy hospitals and cwru in cleveland, ohio. have i been lied to? or is someone now trying to take credit for something that isn’t theirs? i’d like the answer truthfully, wholly, and undeceitfully given, no bullshit. thanks, and have a nice day.
the guy who’d like to be entropy, so YOU tell me how fucked up i am. :wink:

What you’ve been told is wrong. It’s likely some people in Clevland pretending to be bigger than they are.

I can’t recall all the specifics, and the governmental departments who contributed (too many initials). It was however a series of universities, but not specifically hospitals (they may or may not have been involved at all, instinct makes me doubt it).

I’m tempted to do some web searching to get my facts straight, but I’m lazy, and your lazy ass should have tried that before you came here. I’m sure some of the computer nuts here would jump in and correct my efforts, and/or give a 10x more thourogh answer, so I figure why bother?

I think that this belongs in General Questions, since I don’t see any particular Mailbag item that you’re referring to.

I am therefore closing the topic here and moving it to the General Questions forum.

If I am incorrect and this does refer to a Mailbag item, please e-mail me, and I’ll be glad to un-do and move it back here.
