We All Know That Al Gore Invented the Internet…And Now We Learn That Don Johnson Invented Webisodes (Who Knew?)

Jul 7, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Alert the media! Oh, that’s us. Don Johnson invented Webisodes, and did so "long before anyone else in television was thinking about the Internet," the Los Angeles Times reports

That’s just one of the revelations in testimony Johnson has given in a lawsuit with which he is involved. According to the article, "Through his production company Don Johnson Productions, Johnson is suing Rysher Entertainment, which bankrolled "Nash Bridges," for half of all profit from the series. His attorney has claimed that the actor is entitled to tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars."

Talking about going into "Nash Bridges" following his starring role on "Miami Vice," Johnson told the court, the article says, "I was the ‘it’ guy for television and, you know, for pop culture at the time."

The Times article also reports that "as attorneys went through the contract paragraph by paragraph, some jurors looked nearly catatonic."

  1. Al Gore did NOT claim to have “invented” the Internet. That is just an RNC lie. Gore did receive a “webby” lifetime achievement award for three decades of contributions to the Internet, including sponsoring and working for the 1988 High Perormance Computer Act and the 1991 Act (known as the Gore bill). He also worked to fund Netscape founder Andreessen’s Mosiac browser. Kahn and Cerf, invetors of the Internet Protocol and TCP credit Gore’s work for establishing the Internet.
