The internet is something we can’t live without. It’s used not only in our phones, but in our homes, our cars, just about everywhere–it’s apart of our life. But it’s hard to say who invented it. There were many mathematicians and scientists who contributed to its development; computers were sending signals to each other as early as the 1950s. But the thing that we know now as the world wide web owes much of its existence to man known Philip Emeagwali, a math whiz who came up with the formula for allowing a large number of computers to communicate at once.
