The Internet and the Web are not the same thing! Internet is the infrastructure that the Web uses.

The Web uses a HTTP a protocol of TCP/IP to communicate between the server and client. HTML is used to layout the information so the Browser can display the information.

W3: The World Wide Web Consortium sets the standards for the Web (HTML & other Web tools)

Key People: Tim Berners-Lee (HTTP and the Web) and Marc Andresson (Mosaic, the first Web Browser.) Two people who helped change the world!

Ted Talk about what the Internet is about.
