Fact check: Ajay Bhatt was portrayed by an *actor* in the Intel commercial, not by himself.

Most of these other guys rely on this guy:

Vinton Gray “Vint” Cerf[1] ( /ˈsɜrf/; born June 23, 1943) is an American computer scientist, who is recognized as one of [4] the fathers of the Internet”, sharing this title with American computer scientist Bob Kahn.[5][6] His contributions have been acknowledged and lauded, repeatedly, with honorary degrees, and awards that include the National Medal of Technology,[1] the Turing Award,[7] the Presidential Medal of Freedom,[8] and membership in the National Academy of Engineering.

In the early days, Cerf was a program manager for the United States Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) funding various groups to develop TCP/IP technology. When the Internet began to transition to a commercial opportunity during the late 1980s,[citation needed] Cerf moved to MCI where he was instrumental in the development of the first commercial email system (MCI Mail) connected to the Internet.

By the way, he endorsed Gore in 2000.
