Internet was invented by Vint Cerf (1943) and Robert Kahn (1938). Not boomers. World Wide Web by Tim Berners-Lee (1955) Def a boomer. The () are birth years.

Google invented by guys born in the 1970s, so not boomers.

Does it matter? Probably not.
Nobody cares about a guy who came up with the idea in some basement of the CERN. The reason we all have internet today depended on people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Michael Dell... all of which are boomers.
