The internet was developed by the US military, but the way hypertext forms the "world wide web" was invented by an Englishman working in Switzerland, Tim Berners-Lee, in 1981.

Thank you. At least I know I'm not entirely misinformed.

jeez. I see your Tim Berners Lee and I raise you a Vannevar Bush. And a netscape (without which the web would still be ASCII). Etc. But it's not the people inventing the things, it's where they are taken up and and are developed, where there's a climate of experimentation. That may be decreasing in the US, but it's not yet dead.
