Al Gore (born 1948) is credited with pushing legislation through Congress that led to the commercialization of the Internet in the early '90s. The former U.S. vice president was known as an “Atari Democrat” as a senator in the early '80s who was intensely interested in technology. Gore coined the phrase “information superhighway” and was the first U.S. vice president to hold a live interactive news conference on an international computer network. One of the goals of the Clinton administration with Gore as vice president was to connect every classroom to the Internet by the turn of the millennium.
