The second part of your sentence does not make any sense at all.

The end of the sentence should read, "Vint Cerf made himself famous." The sentence is not actually correct. Vint Cerf is considered one of the fathers of the internet. He did not invent it by himself, but was instrumental in the creation along with others. It is also wasn't really the only thing that made him famous, but was one part of his contibutions to the industry.
