What of Black Intellect ?

Black Internet Inventor still struggles for justice for Internet development

Inventor consistently denied a jury trial and justice

Is it just race and criminal justice ?

Black female inventor who claims modern day Internet is her invention alleges unjust court rulings and abuse by the civil justice system

Where is her name in the history of the Internet ?
Dr. John Nash
Dr. Stephan Hawking


What does a disabled African-American woman have in common with the intellectual giants above ? “Certainly      not intellect nor degrees ” , Hartman is quick to say . Dr. John Nash who was represented by Russell Crowe in the movie , ” A Beautiful Mind” was a nobel prize winner for his mathematical genius useful in economics. Dr. Stephan Hawking is a renown theoretical physicist. There is no comparison but it suffices to say that all are disabled . Whereas she has been ridiculed and called “crazy” because her disability includes nervous disorders with other conditions, has been lied about and her character defamed to discredit her allegations – the above referenced intellectuals are of course of a different race and gender she says that makes all the difference in the world . They are revered and respected for their contributions – their handicaps not withstanding.

Ms. Hartman does not have a doctorate degree but says that she was offered opportunities to pursue both a Doctorate degree as well as to pursue medicine but health problems interfered with severe onset around age 24 . She does not claim to be a genius but she does not deserve to be robbed of her intellectual property and not compensated a dime for it and have her character defamed including the illegal seizure of her house for daring to stand up for her property rights ! Others are profiting from her work and her contributions while she is being judged by the color of her skin and the status of her health . ” I am good at what I do .”She was instrumental in Internet development and deserves compensation for her achievements.” I am not a slave to be ripped off and exploited – my contributions stolen by others and used for free – then persecuted for objecting to it .”

She argues that she is not “chopped liver” either as she has completed a Bachelor’s Degree in Education majoring in Biology and Physical Science from Pennsylvania State University and a Master of Science Education majoring in Chemistry and Biology from the University of Pennsylvania . Her transcript shown here from the University of  Pennsylvania Penn Transcript2. Further her inventions help billions of people although she has not been given any credit . Her work set up by fraud in the patent office to be taken over by corporations and the running over of her rights as a Pro Se litigant as she has literally been prevented from hiring attorneys because of smear and defamation campaigns designed to discredit her . Her contributions and inventions help billions of people yet she has received no compensation not even with her patented Snug ‘n Secure projects as she is kept in financial distress , most recently losing her house and her online business hacked online  which was set up by falsified court reporting and unfair trials . She should have every right to compete as anyone else but because of the overwhelming success of the Internet and the greed and oligarchy it has produced instead she has become a target for severe oppression and racism .

Other inventions by Hartman

Internet development was stymied until she introduced her writings about how to use cyberspace which is latent in computers as an alternative marketplace enabling customers and businesses to interact directly with each other .

It has been 26 years since this woman invented the creative ideas that have forever changed the function and character of the Internet– making it possible for it to even extend beyond the boundaries of earth– she is still being disregarded by a government that took the ideas and ran with them without compensating her. “The rules changed when I became involved”, says Inventor.” It generally takes 2-4 years for patent application prosecution I asked to expedite my application when I first filed in 2004– although it was not docketed until 2005. My money was refunded rather than allow me to expedite the application “.Click on images to enlarge them .blog-image-1-request-to-expediteblog-image-2-money-refunded

Dorothy M. Hartman alleges that she is as much a part of Internet History as all the other so called founders as she says that’ there would be no internet had it not been for the National Science Foundation ordering the “Commercialization of Telecommunications in 1990. Merit Networks along with IBM was commissioned for this project by the NSF which had been in charge of the NSFNET which really was a holding place for the retired Internet (the one based on having the ARPANET as its core ). Today’s Internet which is different from the previous Internet which had been discontinued but was transformed by the new ideas and the NSF commission to Merit Networks in 1990. Her contributions made Internet Development different enabling a singular integrative system .

She claims that the success with the Internet which began with the transformation to privitization literally began with ideas that she submitted to the federal government starting in 1989 when she visited the Small Business Administration location at the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. Between this blog and its sister blog at Telecomstraighttalk.com, you can learn more about this side of Internet internet development. It is not just Race and the criminal justice system but the civil justice system is a challenge for African- Americans as well especially relating to social , cultural , and intellectual property rights .

Hartman alleges that she was met with resistance from the beginning and as is mostly the case when African-Americans become involved especially in projects which may become well known or successful financially and ‘elitists’ or those who consider themselves ‘superior’ are in competition– the rules are changed.” I was told my patent application would take 12 years their letter to me dated 6/6/6.” See below.blog-image-lttr-12-years

The change- although her proposals form a paper trail of correspondence between her and federal and state employees reviewing her proposal on Accessing Accessibility which is a business process which marries technology and commerce to business– was received and ideas copied– she essentially has been ignored since. Only after 1999 and the passing of the American Inventor’s Act did business ideas become patentable. The growth of the Internet really began to take off around 2004 as more users and internet service providers increased.2004 increase in internet users 2004-increase-in-internet-users

However because it became a huge success just as she wrote that it would and changed commerce and the way the world does business forever– as success grew and the government funded corporations and other internet protocol companies that were already involved in the field– GREED, RACISM, and OPPRESSION proliferated right along with the Internet. The supposed movement for “Free and open Internet” was nothing more than a smokescreen for companies which have become rich because of the changes in the Internet behind the scenes lobbying against the patent application which was decided 2012-2013. There are billions and trillions of dollars in the industry and in some ways the economy has been run into the ground. Ms. Hartman who is more responsible for the ideas that made today’s internet a success than any other party has been completely ignored since her ideas were read in the 1990’s. She is still seeking Justice as an African-American inventor as she feels that the theft of her intellectual property and legacy is blasphemous as using anyone’s property and trading on that without injuring the person and compensating for that injury is both ethnically and morally wrong. The abuse of power by authorities using systemic racism to abuse the constitutional and civil of African-Americans is fundamentally wrong. “Justice for African-Americans is long overdue.” Injustice involves more than the criminal justice system

Those in Ecommerce and Technology which have now become hugely successful fields did not even understand how today’s Internet which was first dubbed the’ Information Superhighway’ worked. It is only since I started blogging about it around 2011 that those in the industry began to understand how the Internet worked . Even those who built the phones and computers , code , etc. did not invent the concepts of the Internet only used them with proficiency to sell their wares to millions then billions of people , enriching themselves . When I realized that the federal government was just going to settle for the Supervisory Taking of my intellectual property (which is a violation under the 14th and 5th amendment) in that they have snatched the property to use for population without declaring Eminent Domain or compensating me , the inventor in anyway I filed for a patent protect my legal rights ).Below is a partial list of state and federal employees associated with SBIR ( Small Business Innovation Research) and other plans associated with funding small businesses who reviewed her proposals – the National Science Foundation being the ultimate recipient of these innovations and funding requests .blog-images-3-fed-employees-that-reveiwed-proposals

This is wrong and a violation of the Inventor’s civil and constitutional rights. Additionally a local federal judge and the Court(s) have further persecuted her by the illegal seizure of her home– caused by a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure that was allowed to be carried out in the wrong court of jurisdiction.Inventor’s Home Vandalized and Illegally Seized While intellectual contributors or other inventors to inventions or discoveries that have advanced the population– this inventor has been smeared in defamation campaigns and continuously subjected to violations in Due Process. She has filed the matter regarding her illegally confiscated home in the Supreme Court– still hoping for some kind of relief from misapplication of racism, oppression, and law. Cultural and intellectual property rights involve more than just the elites .

Hartman alleges that she is as much a part of Internet History as all the other so called founders as she says that’ there would be no internet had it not been for the National Science Foundation ordering the “Commercialization of Telecommunications in 1990.

Internet , Plagiarized Invention of the 20th Century

African-American inventor , Dorothy M. Hartman says that the “Internet” is the biggest plagiarized idea of the 20th Century

Black female inventor says that the Federal Government plagiarized the “Internet” who some regard as the greatest invention of the 20th Century .

Today’s Internet is not the Internet of yesteryear based on the Arpanet .

A few weeks ago there was a dust up about Trump’s wife alleged plagiarizing of Michele Obama’s speech . There was some discussion of plagiarism especially in the black community as so much has been plagiarized from blacks from soul rhythm and blues to buffalo chicken wings . However it does not stop there , plagiarizing has been around for awhile and those that can get away with it . However , what about plagiarizing whole inventions even great ones ?The following are excerpts of pages taken directly from Dorothy Hartman’s proposals submitted to the federal government in 1990 through its Small Business innovation Research or SBIR programs . New ideas are routinely reviewed by federal government employees but ultimately evaluated by the National Science Foundation when determining the awarding or distribution of funding . Hartman alleges that her ideas as illustrated in these pages of her proposals were plagiarized by the National Science Foundation as it literally stole her ideas to revitalize the NSFNET ( which was a holding placed for the old Internet based on the Arpanet and that had been retired in 1989 ).

She alleges that adapting the retired telecom network for COMMERCIALIZATION based on Hartman’s writings is what produced what was first called the ‘INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY’ and later the ‘INTERNET’. Unlike the prior internet structure which was called the “internetting projects ” because they consisted of a series of mini nets : instinet , bitnet , telenet , and so on – today’s Internet is a seamlessly integrated structure.
These pages taken from Hartman’s proposals to the Benjamin Franklin Technology Center , Pennsylvania Department of Commerce , and the U.S. Small Business Administration represent the core ideas that Hartman alleges were used by the NSF to transform telecom and so changed the world . The federal government continues to suppress her identify and to violate her intellectual property rights . She continues to be unrecognized and uncompensated for her critical contributions 1) Commercialization of telecom and 2) The use of Cyberspace for transactions that changed the face of telecommunications. These concepts revolutionized the telecom industry and are the cornerstones of the modern day Internet . The 4 Hartman documents ( click to enlarge the document) below introduced in 1990 are what put today’s INTERNET in motion and built the trillion dollar Ecommerce and Technology industries .

Hartman alleges that the National Science Foundation plagiarized her ideas to bring the retired telecom structure parked as the NSFNET back to life . With ordinary consumers and businesses engaging on the Internet for the first time and growth began for the industry from there . “And still the monsters have not done right by me , says Hartman. I am owed an award , a prize , honorable mention or something as long as a big fat check accompanies it . Being ignored while my intellectual property rights were simply taken over with no recognition is simply wrong . Her ideas are the reasons why the Internet exists today ” .

This was the invention of Internet 2 , not a telephone or computer , but a business idea .

A black woman inventor alleges that her claims regarding the invention of Internet 2 have made her a victim of intense racism and discrimination


See Inventor’s testimony before Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences Judges in 2012 here 11003123-11

Dorothy Hartman , a retired Science Teacher , inventor , and founder of ABFY Sellers Group Inc says that her life has been turned into an oppression ‘hell’ . Not only was her patent application for the Accessing Accessibility Method when reduced to practice comprises what is today’s Internet ( invented in 1990 when Hartman’s ideas were applied to the prior telecom network(s) founded by ARPA and pioneered by Vinton and Cerf) – but Hartman alleges that the prior Internet based on the Arpanet was retired in 1989 and parked as the NSFnet . The NSFnet was converted in 1990 into a telecom network that was adapted for commerce . Hartman alleges that the National Science Foundation used her ideas to adapt telecom for Commercialization. Here is a copy of the Accessing Accessibility Abstract found here
AccessingAccessibility Abstract.ApplicationNo.11003123 Although her ideas were thoroughly reviewed by numerous government employees working within the Small Business Innovation Research ( SBIR) Program the National Science Foundation gave credit for her invention to those that had been involved in the Internetting Projects from 1969 through 1989 . Hartman alleges that Internet 2 which debuted around 1993 after Merit Networks and IBM had made changes to NSFnet using Hartman’s model of COMMERCIALIZING TELECOMMUNICATIONS which from its initial installment has revolutionized telecommunications and the way the world does business and is the only Internet known and used by the public . The Internet 2 after Commercialization was added and was first nicknamed by Al Gore as the Information Superhighway became a huge success and is continuing to expand today . While the presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump argue about Racism , Hartman says that she is living it and its toxic and destructive effects and influence .

Although Hartman’s contributions were the most cerebral using creative and intuitive thought to suggest the use of cyberspace as an alternative marketplace – they were the most significant as the Internet would not exist without them . Many within the technology field itself still do not understand how the Internet works . A patent application should never have been necessary. The government knows that she was the originator of these ideas . However patented or not the intellectual property is hers . Yet she has been left out and more than that retaliated against with discriminatory treatment because of speaking out about it. Although her inventions contribute trillions of dollars into the economy as other inventions have been stolen through fraud in the USPTO – she is never compensated but robbed of her property both real and intellectual. The Internet even enables internet innovations by others – she is being left without credit or compensation – essentially treated like a slave .Hartman not only was denied her patent application for the Internet – she says based on pure racism and oppression after the government realized the wealth potential of the new Internet but also claims that her home purchased with 30 years of science teaching is being fraudulently foreclosed upon by local bigots and frauds in Philadelphia acting upon the injustice being handed down by the Barack Obama administration .

The Obama administration , Hartman alleges sacrificed her civil and constitutional rights regarding her intellectual property to the lobbying of huge Internet Corporations that have grown rich and powerful because of the new Internet based on Hartman’s model that enables the use of Cyberspace . Hartman alleges the tech geniuses who were selling computers , inventing mobile phones and writing codes out of their garages and apartments became vastly rich after the Accessing Accessibility method was adopted leading to the sales of their products to billions of customers . The billions of customers and the expansiveness of the Internet is the results of Hartman’s creativity and what enabled ecommerce and technology to become rich . The thanks to her as a result of institutionalized racism and oppression due to the wealth of the Internet has thus far been slander , libel , fraud and court cases resulting in unfair and unjust court rulings . She is hoping to reach out to the present administration through legal representation to request that the immense injustice done to her be undone .


The Inventor filed a case in Federal Court in Philadelphia , Dorothy Hartman vs. Bank of New York Mellon, City of Philadelphia, Prudential Realtors et al alleging Fraud , Racial and Disability Discrimination , Vandalism and other Counts . The Federal Judge Paul S. Diamond has closed the case .

The Inventor alleges that her civil and constitutional rights are being violated both by the State Court and Federal Court in allowing a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure on her home , with a Sheriff’s Sale scheduled for next month . The inventor alleges that since purchasing property in the older , historical section of Philadelphia that now holds a number of tourist attractions that she has been victimized by racist realtors .

Further she alleges that she has been victimized by municipal corruption and racist court rulings by the Courts that are supportive of the perpetrators . The abuses began in 1994 when she purchased a condominium on the reknown South Street and was subjected to fraud in the purchase , racial epithets and negligence by the Condominium Board in the upkeep of her condo unit . This led to her having to file a lawsuit against the board members who were a realtor , secretary of the Civil Service Commission , and a police captain . Even though the charges were serious , they were treated very leniently by the judges some of whom were their friends . They were dismissed with a wrist slap. She sold the condo and purchased her current home in the same area where she alleges that she has never been able to enjoy the peace of her own home because of harassment by what is a ring of realtors and their symbiotic friends in city government .

From beginning to end she chronicles a history of abuse including reports to the police who did nothing . Nor was anything done in response to her complaints to agencies such as HUD (Housing and Urban Development) and the PHRC ( Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission ). She therefore started reporting to federal agencies including the Comptroller of the Currency and the U.S. Justice Department [ which took no action especially as she had already filed complaints against the government for the theft of her intellectual property ]. However the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency received her complaints and built an archive of her documents . In spite of a history of gross abuses including vandalism of her house and her automobiles – the federal judge Paul S. Diamond who is trending because of his rulings in the following cases Judge rejects immigration case. and Plaintiffs appeal Thalidomide case The Judge threw her case out of court and remanded what she alleges is a fraudulent mortgage foreclosure case back to state court . She alleges that he ignored evidence that the case which includes the fraudulent mortgage foreclosure and other violations belongs in federal court. In State Court it was then forced through “kangaroo court style” with the judges following the misapplication of law by the federal judge and ignoring evidence that a change of venue was appropriate and that the federal court was the proper jurisdiction.

The inventor alleges that the entire experience is one of injustice where even the court rulings have been based on misapplication of law , perjury and the suborning of perjury by court officers , and the delay or denial of Appeals by both the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania , and the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals .

The Inventor alleges that it is just another example of the blatant violation of her civil and constitutional rights while the world watches so to speak , a public lynching of an “uppity female nigra” . Their interpretation of her character after she demanded that the federal government acknowledge her intellectual contributions to the Internet and she alleges that she was defrauded of her rights by the USPTO and the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals affirmation of the patent office decision .13-1070.opinion.3-6-2013.1 The case blotted out in mainstream media just as the case regarding the application for patent of the internet was blotted out in the media and masked by the smokescreen of Net Neutrality and Free and Open Internet .

She is neither uppity nor arrogant , just a gifted African-American woman who has used her gifts to help others and been exploited by the powerful , oppressive , and greedy because of the value of her inventions. Thus even taking her home purchased with her 30 years of employment for no reasons other than racial hatred , oppression , and envy of her achievements . Her home is being confiscated for a lot of reasons – hatred against her , protection of others because of their ethnicity and retaliation . Acts and rulings based on Institutionalized Racism . The true perpetrators of crimes against her city employees and realtors with ties to government and the courts- their crimes are being swept under the rug by the continued exploitation of a black disabled woman . How is she guilty of crimes caused by others and swept under the rug by prejudicial rulings? This is the epitome of racism . According to law the proper venue of this case is Federal Court not State Court .

Home before Vandalism
Home before Vandalism
Copy (2) of DSCN0142inventor's home after vandalism

The inventor demands a jury trial because she deserves her day in court . The city of Philadelphia and the world have a right to know what those crimes were and who the true perpetrators are . Hartman alleges that she lived always in peace with her neighbors inside of her own home – paying her mortgage from automatic deductions from her bank account . Had the destruction of her home being caused by an act of God or nature or the foreclosure valid , she would not be as upset . THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO REASON WHY HER HOME SHOULD HAVE BEEN VANDALIZED AND FORECLOSED UPON . THIS IS DUE TO BIGOTS AND CRIMINALS ACTING OUT THEIR OWN HATRED AND ENVY AND A JUDGE ALLOWING THEM TO GET AWAY WITH IT BECAUSE OF HIS OWN POLITICAL INTERESTS .

“Therefore I want my day in court so that I can get my home and my life back . I worked too hard . I do not nor have I ever deserved this. This kind of blatant racism and injustice should not be allowed- especially by our Courts who are supposed to protect the rights of all .”

Who is the true Inventor of the Internet ?

The article highlighted below can be found here Who really , really invented the Internet ?

[The Internet ranks somewhere between fire and sliced bread on the world’s list of greatest inventions. But despite being a fairly recent invention, its exact origin remains a point of dispute. Recently, writers from The Wall Street Journal and Scientific American weighed in on the issue, drawing comments from Google’s own Internet forefather Vint Cerf.

Just Ask Al


Who Controls the Internet?
Who Runs the Internet? (Infographic)
The History of the Internet (Infographic)

Al Gore famously blundered his way through a CNN interview in which he stated, “During my service in the United States Congress, I took the initiative in creating the Internet. I took the initiative in moving forward a whole range of initiatives that have proven to be important to our country’s economic growth and environmental protection, improvements in our educational system.”

His statement was, most likely, just a poor choice a words. While it sounds like Gore was trying to say that he partially supported the creation of the Internet through legislation along with many others, he did say the words: “I took the initiative in creating the Internet,” leaving himself the option to take credit if anyone wanted to give it to him. It is generally agreed that Gore is not personally responsible for single-handedly creating the Internet, but he may have played at least a partial role in fostering its creation through federal legislation. And many people believe that the federal government essentially created the Internet through research and legislation.

Private Enterprise Is Responsible

But the government did not create the Internet, L. Gordon Crovitz wrote in a recent op-ed for The Wall Street Journal. The government envisioned a World Wide Web as early as the 1940s and went on to develop the Pentagon’s Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET). However, that network did not lead to the Internet we have today, Crovitz wrote.

Crovitz contends it was Xerox that invented the Internet, though the company wasn’t quite sure what it had. Xerox used its computer networks to share copiers, because that was the company’s business, but that’s where the idea stopped. When Steve Jobs visited Xerox in 1979 to borrow some ideas, he may have seen something bigger. “They just had no idea what they had,” Jobs said.

The government had many of today’s Internet’s integral pieces, such as TCP/IP, but never put them together, Crovitz wrote. It was ultimately private enterprise that made the connections to create the Internet we have today, Crovitz wrote – government just needed to get out of the way.

A Misunderstanding

Actually, the government did invent the Internet and Crovitz doesn’t really understand what he’s talking about, according to a Scientific American rebuttal written by Michael Moyer. No private company could have accomplished such a huge undertaking as the Internet, he wrote.

Crovitz is confused about technology, Moyer wrote. Just because Xerox invented Ethernet, doesn’t mean it also invented “the” Internet – it didn’t, Moyer wrote. Connecting several computers together isn’t the same thing as a worldwide computer network. Robert Metcalfe, a researcher at Xerox PARC who co-invented the Ethernet protocol, jokingly referenced the idea on July 23 in a tweet that read, “Is it possible I invented the whole damn Internet?”

“The most important part of what we now know of as the Internet is the TCP/IP protocol, which was invented by Vincent Cerf [sic] and Robert Kahn,” Moyer wrote. “Crovitz mentions TCP/IP, but only in passing, calling it (correctly) ‘the Internet’s backbone.’ He fails to mention that Cerf and Kahn developed TCP/IP while working on a government grant.”

Moyer also pointed out that several others criticized Crovitz for his misunderstandings, perhaps most notably the author of Dealers of Lightning, a history of Xerox PARC that Crovitz used as his main source of material. “While I’m gratified in a sense that he cites my book,” Michael Hiltzik wrote, “it’s my duty to point out that he’s wrong. My book bolsters, not contradicts, the argument that the Internet had its roots in the ARPANET, a government project.”

Actually, I Invented the Internet

In a recent interview published by CNET, Cerf, one of the creators of the TCP/IP protocol, responded to Crovitz’s piece, rejecting most his ideas, which he characterized as a “revisionist interpretation.”

The Internet did start with the ARPANET project and the federal government directly funded the creation of the Internet we know today, Cerf wrote. And Xerox deserves credit for great work, Cerf wrote, including creation of the Ethernet protocol, the ALTO personal computer, the Xerox Network System and PARC Universal Packet. “XEROX did link homogenous Ethernets together but the internetworking method did not scale particularly well,” Cerf wrote.

Ultimately, it was the work of researchers around the world from dozens of organizations that created the Internet. “After our initial paper was published, detailed design was conducted at Stanford during 1974 and implementation started in 1975 at Stanford, BBN and University College London. After that, a number of other institutions, notably MIT, SRI, ISI, UCLA, NDRE, engaged heavily in the work,” Cerf wrote.

As for Crovitz’s declaration that the TCP/IP protocol languished for decades in the hands of government, only to be set free by private enterprise, Cerf responded, “I would happily fertilize my tomatoes with Crovitz’s assertion.” ]

The Inventor reflects on articles like this one and what has become known as the history of the Internet and makes no mention of her proposals submitted to the Federal Government in 1990 Inventor’s proposal to gov. in 1990

” My experiences and concepts regarding what happened is that the Internet as the Arpanet languished and was parked as the NSFNET in 1989 . That Internet represented here no longer exists .Internet-1987 The modern day Internet first called the Information Superhighway was conceived as a result of my ideas . After my proposals were submitted to the Federal Government – my first contact through SBA ( Small Business Development Centers ) as early as late 1989 . By March 1990 I had submitted my first proposal to the Small Business Administration which was the first agency to review it and share it with the National Science Foundation which reviewed all proposals submitted through these SBIR ( Small Business Innovation Program ) . I submitted similar proposals to other agencies in the program ). After my correspondence with Frank Campo shown here dated November 13 , 1990 – it was not long before the announcement was made that the Internet would adapt to Commercialization or become Privatized.05-21-2015 05;50;58PM05-21-2015 05;59;26PM05-21-2015 05;31;48PM05-21-2015 05;39;19PM

That is when the real Internet ( the one we recognize as being the Internet ) came into being . So I would have to agree with the Crovitz’s comments above “that the TCP/IP protocol languished for decades in the hands of the government , only to be set free by private enterprise .” Except that I would add that the liberation was the direct response of the National Science Foundation to my proposals submitted through the SBIR program . The ideas were too good to ignore . When the telecom networks were adapted for Commerce because of my ideas on using cyberspace for transactions – and giving access to businesses and customers to engage with other directly . It was my ideas on Accessing Accessibility that when they were reduced to practice that comprise what is known today as the Internet and is radically different from the telecom networks that existed before . So when it comes to Who Really Invented the Internet ? – the answer to that is that I am its inventor or at the very least a co- inventor . My rights as an inventor continue to be overlooked by the government because of greed and intentional discrimination with all credit given to those who were already in the field . Technology may have built it , government funded it – but it was my ideas that created it so I am its inventor .” – D. Hartman

Inventor Claims Home Was Illegally Confiscated

A fraudulent mortgage foreclosure which from start to finish was a racial attack carried out by bigots involved in real estate fraud and gentrification was instituted and carried out by blatant disregard for both state and federal law both by law enforcement and law administration says the Inventor .

Continued injustice to the Black Inventor who claims that she invented Internet 2

The inventor who did absolutely nothing wrong that she should lose her home says that after filing lawsuits against heavyweight VIP’s with ties to Philadelphia City government and the courts that she was targeted for slandering , harassment, and bullying . Following that her home and automobiles were vandalized. She sued a Realtor , Secretary of the Philadelphia Civil Service Commission and an attorney , and Captain of a Police District for Violation of Fair Trade Practices and Racial Discrimination in their capacity as members of a condominium association board . She did not know that these people were VERY IMPORTANT PERSONS , but knew them only in their capacity as people who were the board of directors for the condominium association where she purchased a condo . She says that the board members were dismissed from any serious charges by lenient judge(s) – one of whom addressed the Secretary and apologized for him having to come to court – causing her to prevail on a minor charge only.

Since that time and the realization of her going public in 1994 about what she alleges are her contributions to Internet 2 which made its debut in 1990’s , she alleges that besides destroying her private property she has been slandered and libeled. In spite of the fact that the Inventor wrote to several federal agencies referencing the abusive treatment that she was being subjected to by city agencies ( mostly utilities ) within the Civil Service Commission which she alleges some were involved in real estate fraud including HUD and the Comptroller of the Currency – nothing was done to the individuals carrying out the vandalism and extortion of money in bill overpayments.

After city reporting agencies colluded with banks presenting false and scandalous information on her loan application documents to deny her refinancing on her home loan in 2008 , she approached several law administrative agencies including HUD , Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission and Governor Corbett’s Office on Consumer Affairs. Nothing was done . Besides being ridiculed and discredited as being the inventor of Internet 2 , it appears another reason for her being denied justice or even law enforcement action against what are high level criminals with ties to city government and the courts was the fact that she had participated in a Commission Report from the Pennsylvania Supreme Court Committee on Racial and Gender Bias in its Justice System . She was asked to participate by a black , female judge to provide her experiences within the court which ran from interruption of due process to ignoring subpoenas of the defendant(s) to come to court and she provided information for the report . Above is an image of that 1999 report .

Pennsylvania has been the subject of several justice scandals including Mumia Abu- Jamal whom some consider a political prisoner , the bombing of MOVE a commune of African-Americans in Philadelphia the only known bombing of its own citizens within a city , Kathleen Cane who released racist and pornographic emails circulated among prosecutors and Supreme Court Justices , and until recently after a few thousand were released known as the state with the highest number of Black incarcerations. Public education has not had an approved budget for two years in a row and some students , mostly black reportedly have no schools to attend.

What is an illegal taking of the inventor’s home and the ruining of her name and financial reputation has been carried out in a toxic and systemic way ever since 1994 when she purchased real estate in a very competitive area of town where a considerable number of the perpetrators live . Vigorous gentrification is being carried out and the Inventor claims that the vandalistic attacks on her home and automobiles which were allowed to continue which the police district ( the one over which the Captain mentioned in the lawsuit , treasurer of the condominium association had served ) did absolutely nothing about. She alleges that this and resentment toward her for being a highly educated articulate woman made her a target of hate attacks by racist realtors having a symbiotic relationship with city employees . The destruction of her home as well as slanderous and libelous information furnished to the bank by city reporting agencies to deny her refinancing on mortgage(s) with rates as high as 7.25% is what led to her problems .

Home Before Vandalism

The Inventor had maintained a 705 credit rating even after being denied the opportunity to refinance by renting her property out . She alleges ” the racist thugs conspired to have a convicted felon come in trash the home and rob the tenants . This created an 8,000+ interruption in income which caused me to default . Even so within 4 months when I was only in arrears $7111 – the bank would not allow me the opportunity to repair the default . It prevented me from any relief and because of extreme damages and much needed repairs made it difficult to impossible to deal with other lenders .”

Inventor’s Home After Vandalism . Windows were broken , holes in the walls , bannisters and closet doors broken , plumbing damaged .

The Inventor filed in federal court because of the violations to both her civil and constitutional rights . The inventor was prevented by the then current district attorney to file charges against the felon recruited by the perpetrators to damage the home . The federal judge  on the case- some refer to as the  lawyers’ judge failed to take into account evidence that the Inventor’s civil and constitutional rights are and have been violated . She had been forced to proceed Pro Se , at the time not aware of the poisonous fraudulent court documents that had been used to defame her in legal databases ‘ blacklisting ‘ her from legal representation . The Inventor alleges that he improperly remanded the case back to State Court and that she has been placed in position of having to fight the portions of the same case in both courts while the federal judge has dismissed all charges against the perpetrators . The inventor has appealed the case in both courts , as it is in State Court that the bank has been allowed to seize her property because evidence is being either ignored and/or withheld in both courts that the case belongs under the jurisdiction of the federal court . The inventor has appealed in both courts and she avows that she deserves her day in court . Thus far the case has been blacked out of mainstream media as were the cases relating to her intellectual property – so that these abuses to her continue under the radar . “Because of institutionalized racism , and the failure by the federal government to credit me for my contributions to the country – giving credit and compensation to others – I am being made a scapegoat by racist criminals and oppression by municipal corruption . I am being demonized while the perpetrators are not being held accountable . These are not the worst of their crimes against me but the federal judge dismissed them all- essentially allowing the banks to default on responding to their issued summons to court .”Federal Judge dismisses all charges

For those of you with access to Pacer.gov or you can be for a small fee , you can view the process and read the level of ignoring of evidence and lack of due process that occurred . Right now the inventor is awaiting the opportunity to appeal while the illegal mortgage foreclosure is still being allowed to continue with her home to go up on Sheriff’s sale .You may view both cases on line , the State Case is in the Court of Common Pleas in Philadelphia and the Case number is Bank of New York Mellon et al vs. Dorothy Hartman 120202759 . The other Case is 2:13-cv-01909 in the District or Federal Court in Philadelphia is Dorothy Hartman vs. Bank of New York Mellon , City of Philadelphia et al . An appeal was filed in Superior Court to challenge the illegal mortgage foreclosure in State Court , Superior Court case no. 3157 EDA 2015 denied an appeal . A Petition for the Allowance of an Appeal was filed with the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania on Feb. 3, 2015, Case No. 45 EAL 2016 and the 3rd Circuit Court of Appeals , a Notice of Appeal was filed with them shortly after the Federal Judges 20 page Order issued on Oct. 20 , 2015 Case No.15-1318.

The Motions entered by the inventor , Dorothy Hartman give some semblance of the narrative of events surrounding the case . The inventor alleges that these are criminal acts that thus far do not seem to be addressed by the courts . The case although rife with everything from perjury and misapplication of law by officers of the court including elimination and ignoring of evidence is thus far awaiting to be approved for appeal – not even on appeal yet while her home has been listed for a Sheriff Sale .

“This is nothing but the destruction of my home and finances in retaliation against me for standing up for my rights . A public lynching based on illegal actions by big shots with ties to the government and courts and based on nothing except racism , hatred , and oppression carried out by misapplication of the law. I have done absolutely nothing wrong that I should lose my legally purchased home . I am being railroaded and treated for dissent in standing up for my own property rights while the perpetrators- high collar criminals apparently above the law are being coddled. This might as well be Palestine as far as the rights of black people are concerned. Whereas injustice for blacks continues – I want and deserve my day in Court . I am still hopeful for justice and some measure of relief from this egregiously unjust situation.”

The fact that it was mostly males and powerful governmental agencies that inflicted this amount of humiliating and abusive acts on me makes this more than a public lynching for what they consider an arrogant black female to put the ‘ nigra in her place ‘ but exploitative intellectual rape and hatred towards a woman for being smarter than they are . I have never been aggressive , but a quite living private person . What made me go public and try to fight back was the extreme number of crimes being committed against me with no one doing anything because the criminals are the authorities . Barack Obama did not help because he gave in to the lobbying of the search engines , social networks , ecommerce sites , internet service providers , code writers and the myriads of agencies that have grown rich because of the changes that my intellectual property made to the internet . He did absolutely nothing to protect my intellectual property – to the contrary he worked against it . It is blasphemy and the work of the devil and the psychosis of racism that is part of the fabric and pathos of this nation – which is declining from its own corruption and hate for black people .

First to Invent , First to File

Internet innovation has never been so good as it now accommodating billions from all over the world , but its true inventor Dorothy M. Hartman suffers injustice and abuse.

The woman who alleges that she is the mind behind this creation which now consists of vast amounts of cyberspace – used by technology and innovation enabling corporations to make billions of dollars has not fared so well

Internet innovation
now produces tens of thousands of new websites launched every day. but when and where did the innovation start

Websites that vary from small business startups to educational programs , news , music , entertainment , more
technology and innovation have sprung up since the debut of the Internet 2 and have been springing up since 1995 – but the true internet inventor has not been credited or compensated . This fantastic phenomenon which we refer to did have a beginning . The woman whose creative ideas served as the catalyst for the Internet which appeared in 1990-1991 and is now known around the world has been left out of Internet innovation and history . It was Hartman’s ideas on internet innovation which led to the wave of technology and innovation which has run for the past 25 years – yet this inventor suffers a huge injustice .

Not only has this inventor not been compensated in any way for her ideas that have contributed even to nasdaq innovation as the economy of the entire country has grown because of ideas that she alleges were brought to the federal government by her in its Small Business Innovation Research Program(s). This set the ever expanding Internet into motion .The seamless structure contributed to by the ideas of this inventor which results in waves of cyberspace transmitting different kinds of transactions simultaneously all over the world has not been associated with her at all . The credit for the Internet has been given to the federal government and to those that were associated with the prior Internet structure called the Arpanet and smaller nets adjunct to it like the Telenet , Downet , Milnet , and others .800px-Arpanet_logical_map,_march_1977Internet-1987

The government is keeping mum about it because it has declared itself by default to be the originator of this new Internet – which began in this country but starting with NAFTA and other international trade agreements has been propagated all over the world . The Inventor alleges that the government provided the funding but the ideas came from her . She has not been attributed a dime of compensation nor any recognition . Contrarily she is suffering abuse and damages .Hartman Proposal to U.S. Government 1990

She says that those who were struggling to innovate from their apartments and garages limited by the telecom structure before 1990 which some today still refer to as the Internet 1 or “internetting projects” have been given the credit and allowed to prosper while she has suffered defamation and pecuniary loss . Responsible for this is the government’s illegal confiscation of her intellectual property while violating her property rights without righting the situation. The inventor alleges the usual motivations : institutionalized racism , oppression , greed , and arrogance as she is African-American and disabled . ” Ironically the huge success of the Internet and huge fortunes of wealth and power that it has produced are the reasons why I am being intentionally discriminated against . My interest is in Justice . This administration has not been helpful. I deserve that , says Hartman . I don’t look to rule over the Internet . I have always been a quiet and private person . However it is one of the most prolific inventions of all time . I deserve commendation and compensation .Accessing Accessibility Patent Application

Her Patent Application #11003123 , the Accessing Accessibility Process – the process she alleges ushered in today’s modern Internet is a business method which showed how to meld business to technology in a seamlessly integrated structure built from a network of computers and modems or phones being linked by Internet Service Providers . Adding more communicable devices be it computers , modems or phones can be done using this simple , almost elementary model introduced by Hartman thereby giving the Internet the ability to grow and expand.

The models and ideas submitted to the federal government by Hartman account for the reasons why the Internet is both flexible and expansive. The reduction of her business method , Accessing Accessibility to practice created a virtual cyberspace between the devices in which billions of virtual interactions can occur . Her simplified structures or figures taught how the communicable devices can be linked via internet service providers presenting an integrated unit capable of tremendous expansion . This is a different model from the rather rigid and complex structures that were created in earlier forms of the telecom structure which were based on the Arpanet . Although her invention has circulated trillions of dollars through this economy and throughout the world producing more jobs and innovation than any other invention in history – she alleges that the federal government is still disrespecting her and her contributions by violating her civil and constitutional rights .

The Internet nicknamed the Information Superhighway was first introduced in 1993 and was so new that users had to be taught how to navigate it as it was structurally and functionally different from the Internet based on the Arpanet that existed before 1990 .

The Inventor has filed a Petition for a Writ of Mandamus with the U.S. Supreme Court asking that a Writ issue to force the United States Patent and Trademark Office to obey what are the current laws of the land in referencing the issue of patents . At the very least , the inventor is hoping that she will be properly compensated for her intellectual contributions which have enhanced this nation as justice has been too long delayed . Indeed this invention which some hail as the greatest of the 20th Century is unprecedented and has revolutionized the way that the world does business . An update to this article is that the U.S. Supreme Court has ruled to uphold the Decision by the U.S. Federal Appeals Court found here The Inventor will continue to seek what she alleges is a huge injustice as the trillions of dollars in Nasdaq innovation were produced as a result of her innovative ideas.


Above is the title page for the Writ of Certiorari submitted to the U.S. Supreme Court asking it to reopen the decision by the U.S. Federal Circuit Court of Appeals denying her patent application for the Accessing Accessibility Process which the inventor alleges when reduced to practice comprises what we know as the modern day Internet . The Writ was denied by the court in November , 2014 Federal Circuit Ct. of Appeals decision here to affirm Patent Office Decision 13-1070.opinion.3-6-2013.1

While all of this legal maneuvering was blacked out of mainstream media and the public discussion or smokescreen was the so called – “keeping the Internet free-and- open ” and ” Net Neutrality .” The debate was a distraction carried out by lobbying of major internet corporations lobbying the government since Hartman had filed her application in 2004 . The application was held for 8 years while the government alleges Hartman found a way to get around the awarding of a patent . The Inventor wrote the process for use by businesses and consumers so it has always been Hartman’s Accessing Accessibility Proposal to Federal Government an open Internet . Her complaint is that she alleges that not only was the patent application denied but the government has failed to recognize or compensate her for the use of her intellectual property . Especially now that it has been declared a Public Utility . President Obama and the federal government have failed to declare Eminent Domain or in any manner recognize or compensate the inventor .

The Court decisions do not deny her ownership of the intellectual property just the denial of the granting of a patent . So the inventor has not ruled out further legal action if the government continues to ignore her property rights .

In addition to being placed in a position of disrespect and violation of the inventor’s civil and constitutional rights to equal access under the law by the federal government , the inventor continues to be subjected locally to injustice . She alleges that her property including home and automobiles have been vandalized and that she has been subjected to discrimination and fraud Racism in Pennsylvania Courts. This has led to a “fraudulent mortgage foreclosure aided and abetted by rulings of a federal judge”. The inventor is appealing what she alleges is wholesale assault on her civil and constitutional rights . She alleges that it is injustice that is related to rulings based on institutionalized racism and holding back the advancement of colored people .

The Inventor is supporting Bernie Sanders in the upcoming presidential elections as she hopes for a departure from the overwhelmingly toxic and corrosive government politics that have backed corporations and the build up of millionaires and billionaires . The country has become a nation of oligarchs while going backwards when it comes to the welfare of middle class working Americans . The inventor is both furious and heartbroken that the first Black president turned his back on her plight as an African American inventor with the most prolific invention of the 20th century .

She feels that she should never have been treated in the manner in which she is being treated – having done everything to contribute to the welfare of others as well as herself . However her civil right and constitutional rights have been run over by greed , racism and oppression being practiced by many who have profited from her intellectual property . It is an outrage and being practiced under the radar by a deliberate blackout in the national media .

Evidence of fraud and evidence within the patent office itself was not considered . Just as rules of evidence and facts of the law were ignored she alleges by the federal judge that has allowed banks that deliberately set up the fraudulent mortgage foreclosure to proceed with it in order to take her home and continue to denigrate and try to “criminalize” her for having the audacity to stand up for her own intellectual property . ” Ironically ” , says the inventor , ” the success of the Internet and the riches that it has amassed for some is the reason why I an African-American female inventor is being persecuted . The world is so upside down , new leadership is needed here and in other countries . Jobs and a decent standard of living are needed for nations to be maintained .”

Public Education : Black Internet Inventor

The ideas for the Internet resulted from a public school education

I attended public school and worked in public education participating from both ends , says Inventor

The inventor who worked in public education for over 24 years comments on the debate raging regarding public schools vs. charter schools. Public education with whatever funding problems may have plagued it presented an opportunity for the vast majority of students to pursue their goals if they desired to do so. “Beware of the carrot-stick approach being offered by the glitter of charter schools or the attempt at privatizing , warns Hartman . We know from experience that often social programs like education , health care , environmental protections and others once privatized end up on the stock market where dollars become the standard of success and not the investment in the welfare of the students .”

The concept of charter schools appears to be a good one in offering some students the opportunity to be exposed to materials , conditions , and hopefully teachers that can help them grow and improve . The problem is the actual number of students that are able to attend these specialized schools is actually small in number compared to the population- leaving the majority of children behind . That should be unacceptable in a nation like the United States which because of the oligarchy and the regressive policies directed towards minorities for the past 30 years is vastly falling behind excellence in education as compared to other nations .

The carrot-stick approach for those of you old enough to remember is like sticking a carrot in front of the nose of a mule to get him to move and at the same time hitting him from the rear with a stick . Charter schools were the bait to start stripping funding from public schools under the illusion that because some students would be getting perhaps a better education – but this was at the expense of those left behind . Of course , the numbers do not add up even at one point creating a lottery to have families compete for the opportunity to get their students into a charter school .

That carrot approach offering ‘charter schools’ in order to improve education is steadily stripping and thus eliminating public schools . This will leave the majority of students which are mostly black , hispanic , and poor whites in desperately inadequate schools . Public education could be phased out all together . Remember that specialty schools were a part of public education . There were high performing magnet schools and other special programs that could be attended by academically bound students . Vocational and technical schools were also available to those students who chose career and skill oriented schools .

but my bet is anyone of them could be , a scientist , an engineer , a leader of tomorrow “.

The ideas on which the modern day Internet was created and expands all over the world were introduced by a public school educated black woman . Those who have profited from the Internet and Telecommunications related industry would now like to take opportunity away from public education and extend it to more privatization for feeding dollars into industries rather than putting sound ideas and excellence which improves our standard of living .Gates Foundation Help or Hindrance ? Public education and affirmative action are worth keeping and shame on policies that seek to hold back the advancement of our youth , whatever their color or gender .

The students in the photos to the left were ordinary junior and senior high school students who were chosen for their interest in medical field and or their aptitude for science . They were not necessarily scholars or discipline problems but the program was well attended and the students were very much involved in what they were doing . Although carried out on a college campus which in itself can be intimidating , one hour lecture and three hours laboratory in biological science – the students worked diligently .

“We should not throw the baby out with the bath water” , says the inventor . It is possible in a nation and economy this size to make the necessary adjustments to hold onto those institutions which built a great nation that at one time was envied by the entire world. Maintaining our public schools , repairing the country’s infrastructure , adding “greening” jobs to conserve the environment , a single payer health care system are ways back to providing millions of jobs .

Intellectual Property and Race

“Good Ideas always look up.”

” My ideas were the beginning of the Internet ” , says African-American Internet Inventor

The Federal Government communicated with me for 3 years starting in 1990 and reviewed my proposals for commercializing the telecom industry thoroughly. Now tries to act as though they do not know who I am

I contributed valuable internet intellectual property but because of institutionalized racism , the oppressors are trying to take everything from me – even my house. I am appealing that .

See some of the Talk Shoppe Inc. documents here for communication between myself and government employees for what at the time were novel ideas . here Talk Shoppe Docs

"I was there from the beginning' - Inventor
“I was there from the beginning’ – Inventor

“Now the government acts as though it does not know who I am when my proposals were reviewed by numerous federal government employees through the Small Business Administration and other agencies in the SBIR ( Small Business Innovation Research Program ) “. The head agency being the National Science Foundation which determined who and how the grants were doled out .

They came up with all kinds of reasons as to why they could not fund my start up in telecommunications services , Talk Shoppe Inc. (Read Talk Shoppe Docs above) . They even found a way to deny me funding through the Handicapped Assistance Program – citing one of the reasons as I was not sick enough . There was not enough new technology proposed , etc. , etc. However they had no problems in stealing my ideas on putting ordinary consumers and businesses online plus simplifying the networks to an integrative system – accessible by one logon . Previously more than one logon was required to sign on to the Arpanet ( the previous version of the Internet ). The modern day Internet was invented by a black female internet inventor .

Logging into the Telenet and the Downet in 1989 required multiple logons.

I gave the U.S. government the greatest invention in the world which it has credited to itself and inventors and corporations that were already in the Telecom industry making them super rich . This while I continue to suffer Discrimination , Oppression , and the most virulent form of Racism . On top of the fraud practiced in the Patent Office , and aided by this administration – the racists and bigots have taken my house ( that is being appealed ). They are acting as though Civil Rights Laws were never entered on the books and that it is all right to take what belongs to me and call it theirs or crediting others without acknowledging or compensating me .

I always knew the scope and potential scope of the invention and at one time wanted to share with the country the idea of an invention which I knew would spur the economy . However the arrogant ” Exceptionals” and ” Superiors ” now use their riches , success , and might to continue to oppress me which explains why after 25 years I have not been able to successfully launch my business . What limited resources I have , I have had to spend in endless litigation trying to protect my property both real and intellectual . It’s heartache and a struggle for me and disgrace and decline for a nation that is going backwards . ” – D. M. Hartman
