    It depends on what you mean. In 1969 the first data communication system was setup between two university computers using telephone lines and modems. The www protocol came later.

    This is like asking who invented the hydrogen bomb. Many contributed to the invention. Mosen inventions are too complex and expensive for basement inventers.

    Tim Berners--Lee, is given the credit for the WEB BROWSER. This made changing web pages easy. Before this one had to type the entire: http/www., whenever you changed pages.

    This is time consuming for the average person.

    The theory came before Arpanet, the military or Berners-Lee. In fact, it came before computers, with ideas about a network of information that could be connected so that users could link from one piece of information to other, related pieces. The idea of a hypertext (the 'h' in http) came from Vannevar Bush in 1945. Ted Nelson coined the term "hypertext" in 1963. Berners-Lee is credited with theorizing about connecting computers. He coined the term World Wide Web, which is why he is often credited with "inventing" it, although that's not entirely accurate. There were internet connection before then, but they weren't worldwide.

    Former VP Al Gore said he did. Nobody took him seriously.

    In reality, it began in the late 1960s as the "Arpanet" when a group of US universities wanted to set up a network to communicate with one another online. They set up a network that was robust enough to survive if some of the institutions and structure were destroyed in a war or other catastrophe. It eventually morphed into what we now call the Internet.

    I am not going to write a long story nor explain the technical makeup of the system. There are plenty of good accounts of it online: start with Wikipedia and look up "Arpanet."
