Arise Sir Tim

Arise Sir Tim.  The BBC reports (Web's inventor gets a knighthood) Mr Tim Berners-Lee has been awarded a knighthood. Recently he told the BBC World Service's Go Digital programme that his invention was “just another program”, and he originally wanted it to help achieve understanding.” The original idea of the web was that it should be a collaborative space where you can communicate through sharing information. The idea was that by writing something together, and as people worked on it, they could iron out misunderstanding.” he said. Currently Mr Berners-Lee heads up the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  [Smart Mobs]
