Sorry to pee in your pot baldilocks, but the Digital Computer was first built by a German Konrad Zuse
some may argue that it was Turing, although he did have a significant role in the progression Theory of Computing he can not be considered the inventor.
The first affordable Desktop was the Altair in Albuquerque, NM, but can be argued to be Steve Jobs Apple.
ARPANET was a British precursor to the Internet, but has virtually no relation to modern day Internet technology. TCP/IP was a creation of many companies in many companies which can be credited to the UN and WHO for bringing many nations together to create a global standard.
So as usual the Brits try to claim credit for the inventions of others. Britain did for a time prove to be a world leader during the Industrial Revolution, mainly financed by its global terrorism and theft, many of the of the great inventors were only claimed as british because the were from sovereign nations which came under the British realm of influence.
so once again your obsession with all things British is completely wrong
Well, if you get all ranty (unnecessarily) and rely upon Wikipedia for facts, then you deserve to be hoisted by your own petard...
Arpanet was an American invention, coming out of the DARPA group (funded by the US DoD), which was investigating methods of linking military, commercial and scientific establishments/groups, allowing for high levels of redundancy following some post-apocalyptic scenario.
TCP/IP - transmission control protocol/internet protocol was born in the labs of DARPA and it`s partners, such as the New York AT&T Labs, where so many amazing stuff was created. The first official RFC (RCF 674 to be pedantic) was in 1973, although aspects of TCP/IP where in use previously under different incarnations. Giving credit to the UN and WHO is, at best, arse water and has no validity whatsoever.
There were many computers that graced the desktop before the Altair. My first computer was an Altair, constructed from parts shipped from Radio Shack in the US, so I know intimately what was around at time. As for the Apple angle - nonsense. There were many machines available by the time that came out. It was a good machine and is an iconic reminder of the 70`s.
As for Zuse, a damn clever ******, but certainly not
the inventor of a digital computer. It wasn`t until those clever chaps created the microprocessors, did things become digital, around 1968. Prior to that, things where reliant upon valve technology or used simple logic circuits reliant upon simple NOR gates (three!). Zuse, like Turing, built electro-mechanical devices.
Think you might want to get your aim a bit better before you attempt to piss in someone else`s pot. You`ve made a right mess on the floor.
Tim Berner-Lee invented the markup or scripting language that allowed academics at CERN to publish technical data, in a common format, on the internal LAN or to a wider audience. This would later form the standard for what we know as HyperText Markup language or HTML. This was the birth of the World Wide Web - in other words a pretty and funky graphical view replacing what what had previously being a character laden world. Certainly made the Internet accessible to the great unwashed, but not the invention of the Internet by any definition.
