A Piece of Trivia…and a congratulations!!
Did you ever wonder who invented the World Wide Web as you “surf” the net on your iPAQ? I have and I really didn’t know the answer till today when I saw this article on the BBC.
Here are some interesting facts about Tim Berners-Lee
Born in London in 1955 Studied at Wandsworth’s Emanuel School Read physics at Queen’s College, Oxford Banned from using the university’s computer when he and a friend were caught hacking Built own computer with old TV, a Motorola microprocessor and soldering iron Created web in late 1980s and early 1990s at Cern Offered it free on the net Previously awarded an OBE In 1994 he founded World Wide Web Consortium at MIT In 1999 he became first holder of the 3Com Founders chair
Time magazine named him one of the top 20 thinkers of the 20th Century
