Al Gore Did Not Create The Internet

I can’t count how many times I’ve heard people laugh about how Al Gore said he created the Internet.  Not that I’m sticking up for him or anything, but he never really claimed to have invented the Internet, so it irks me when people perpetuate that myth.

As this cool Neatorama article entitled 10 Things You Should Know About the Internet explains, Gore actually had a hand in helping to legislate initiatives that allowed the Internet to proliferate, though he never claimed to have invented it.  The article is well worth the read, as it explains a bunch of neato things that you should know about the “information superhighway” (a term that Gore actually <em>did</em> invent).

The Whappers news

We had a great time opening for The Trainwreks last night at The Garage last night. We only got asked to turn down once, and the only thing running through the PA was the kick drum and the vocals (hehehe).

Thanks to our ever-present fan Don, we have had a sting of great pictures from each performance in and around Asheville. Here are a couple from the Stella Blue gig a few weeks ago:

On my new Tama Superstars :)
