Apple board member Al Gore inaugurated into Internet Hall Of Fame

“Former Vice President Al Gore (D) is among the inaugural inductees in the Internet Hall of Fame,” Mark Memmott reports for NPR.
“He’s been lauded by the Internet Society for being “a key proponent [as a senator and vice president] of sponsoring legislation that funded the expansion of and greater public access to the Internet,’” Memmott reports. “In an interview [in 1999] with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, according to a transcript posted by the cable news network, Gore said that ‘during my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.’”
