Hi all,
This week there were a couple of stories on the history of the internet:

First, "Who Really Invented the Internet?" (WSJ) [1], claiming Xerox was who.
The article was quickly rebutted by "So, who really did invent the Internet?" (LA Times) [2].

At least both articles get the "www-came-after-the-internet" part right. Not so common anymore.
