The internet was created by a high Priest from a Switzerland church as you can see in the Wikipedia entry:

In the 1980s, research at CERN in Switzerland by British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee resulted in the World Wide Web, linking hypertext documents into an information system, accessible from any node on the network 2

The original idea of the internet was that it will be a a place to facilitate sharing and updating information among researchers, and collaborate

In November 2009, Berners-Lee launched the World Wide Web Foundation in order to "advance the Web to empower humanity by launching transformative programs that build local capacity to leverage the Web as a medium for positive change."

He advocates the idea that net neutrality is a kind of human network right: "Threats to the Internet, such as companies or governments that interfere with or snoop on Internet traffic, compromise basic human network rights."

By August 2001, the directory model had begun to give way to search engines, tracking the rise of Google (founded 1998), which had developed new approaches to relevancy ranking. Directory features, while still commonly available, became after-thoughts to search engines.

Database size, which had been a significant marketing feature through the early 2000s, was similarly displaced by emphasis on relevancy ranking, the methods by which search engines attempt to sort the best results first. Relevancy ranking first became a major issue circa 1996, when it became apparent that it was impractical to review full lists of results. Consequently, algorithms for relevancy ranking have continuously improved. Google's PageRank method for ordering the results has received the most press, but all major search engines continually refine their ranking methodologies with a view toward improving the ordering of results.

But what is not discussed upfront is how in 2015-2016 the internet was sold (Search & Social) to corporations, new sites and how the blogs and independent creators where dropped in the dark web, how the web innovation was crushed.

Now the Internet is just a big showroom for corporations and adds. Content quality, relevancy where all replaces with BRANDING.

Yes (the internet was sold)[http://www.viperchill.com/google-control/], it is no longer a network of inovation is just a medium for adds, low quality content and in no way a place where you which facilitates learning, intelligence and promotion of Science.

The internet is dominated by corporations with massive link building schemes. Slowly but surely now the independent sites are dying, internet innovation stops and the internet is just a big place for adds, political interests and manipulation.

And Facebook? even worst, there is the place where Money talks

It quotes Google Chairman Eric Schmidt as saying:

We don't need you to type at all because we know where you are. We know where you've been. We can more or less guess what you're thinking about ... Is that over the line?

The day is probably not too far off when Google and Facebook ban all independent media websites. When that day comes *

While this statement is exaggerated, it actually happened right in front of us, independent websites are just shadow banned, not shown on page 2 of Google but on page 11 ...
