No one person; like Topsy, it sort of "just growed." The

backbone of the Internet in the US was the old ARPA (Advanced

Research Projects Agency) network, created to link various sites

(mainly universities and government labs) working on, well,

advanced research projects for the US Department of Defense and

other government agencies.
