The High Performance Computing and Communication Initiative came from the High Performance Computing and Communication Act of 1991, also known as the Gore Bill, because it was introduced by Al Gore. The initiative led to the development of the Mosaic web browser and a high-speed fiber optic computer network. It also led to the "information superhighway" also known as the National Information Infrastructure. This was the beginning of the Internet.
