During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating theInternet.
- Al Gore describing his 1986 legislation to interconnect five supercomputer centers (17 years after thefirst Internet servers hooked up)
If Gore invented the Internet, I invented spell-check.
- Former Vice President J. Danforth Quayle
The day I made that statement, I was tired because I’d been up all night inventing the Camcorder.
- Al Gore attempting damage control
Those days were funny, weren’t they? Actually, the Internet is just a grown-up version of ARPANET.
