    Hmmm the internet was thanks to the US Gov't. But W3 is no DARPA creation. Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web hyperlink system on a NeXT system.

    In effect since the NeXTstep OS components are part of OS X you could say that WWW was invented on a Macintosh in a roundabout kind of way.

    Were lucky to have him at MIT here in Boston. Glad that he got a Mac! :)

    Well ARPANET was definitely the network that DARPA created in the U.S Government.
