Assuming you mean the internet, it was the work of researchers around the world from dozens of organizations that created the Internet.

Mykkadri? What do you mean by "wrong!"?
She boiled it down to the most basic phrase, but it is essentially correct.

I assume you're thinking of ARPANET, but there was also NPL in the UK who first publicly demonstrated packet switching, and others working on same problems, almost simultaneously, etc etc. Global Internet could not have been accomplished without many people from other nets solving problems as they arose.

The internet was originated by a lot of people over a long period of time starting in the early 1960's. You can read some of the history here:

Your question is kinda vague. There really is no one creator, even if somebody tries to lay claim to it.
Given the places it started from and the permutations it's gone through to become the thing(s) it is today, it would take a couple chapters of a book just to describe the types of local networks in the early days, let alone who was involved in translating between them and interconnecting them. But, for the most basic answer, Googeit and seedy3 have it covered.

The Internet cane out of work by the US military and universities. The Web was devised by Sir Tim Berners-Lee while working at CERN.
