Was the First Internet User a Noob?

Great question with a funny answer - from gameplayer

perhaps not but the first guy (forgot his name) to create the internet browser is a noob. He didn't mind patenting it and now he could have been one of the richest guys in the world.... ...but no.

Far out, what a mega mistake. I am already so annoyed that when I was first on the Net as a kid in the early nineties I did not register heaps of smart domain names.

I read a story about a guy who registered www.madonna.com in the first days of the Net cause he was a big fan and the record label ended up having to pay him millions for it down the track.

just like a certain country where the domain letters happened to be " TV ". If I'm not mistaken, the USA ended up paying loads of cash to this country so they could create www.xxxxxx.co.TV websites .

The answer is the second guy to use the Net. Although the story in the article is far funnier, especially the Dr. Who joke - LMAO

Who knew the ins and outs of everything computer related. Infact when they used the keyboards, they were so saintly with all things computers, their hands floated inches above their keyboard.

I'd know because I'm THAT old. ;-)
