So, it's not just one person that 'made' the internet. There have been many developmental stages leading up to where the internet is today. Most people say that Robert E. Kahn and Vint Cerf invented the Transmissions Control Program in the early 70s and that was the central 'invention' that led up to the Internet. This event is important for internet history, but it isn't an adequate origin for the entirety of the internet.

It began with the US military. They wanted a network to tie computers together across the country, back when computers cost millions of dollars and there were only maybe 100 of them in the whole country. The idea was to allow people to use these computers from all around the country, for military purposes. And the network was designed to survive a nuclear war. If one link was taken out, like if Chicago got nukes, the net would automatically route around it.
Over a few years, colleges began using it too, so for instance you could take a course in programming and use a computer in another city.
In the 90s, the military no longer had use or the network so they were just going to shut it down. Congress passed a bill (headed by Al Gore) to fund the Internet as a public resource. So we have it today. And if Chicago got nuked, we wouldn't miss it!
