They are basically the people who created the internet and stuff.
No they didn't. The internet was a civilian extension of the military ARPA network. The web standards (I.E: how we are seeing this VERY page) we know today were done by Sir Tim Berners Lee, who was also one of the W3Consortium funding members. The W3C tells HTML to jump and it yells "HOW HIGH, LORD AND MASTER OF OUR UNIVERSE, SIR?"
