Who invented the internet and how did he come up with the idea?

it was invented by the military as a means of communication. dunno the guy's name. how he came up with it was most likely that he needed to connect computers over a long distance. Yes, the government along with universities developed the internet as a way for scientists to share ideas. Originally it was just email and FTP sites as well as the Usanet where scientists could question and answer each other. Eventually, I think it was someone at the university of Illinois supercomputing center that came up with HTML documents or what we know of now as the web. The idea there was that you could have a document that could be seen from other computers by using a browser and you could display information in HTML format. That part of the internet is what became comercialized and is what most people think of as the internet. Tim Berners-Lee invented the internet. Here is his website: w3.org
