Posted by Jake in Past, Web.


You are using the internet at this very moment, you know that if you want any information about anything the web will be there. But the internet wasn’t always here.

Do you know who invented the internet?
Sir Timothy Berners-Lee born on the 8 June 1955 in London, UK was the person to create the world wide web. He is also the director of the World Wide Web Consortium, the main international standards organization for the internet.

With the number of people using the web passing 1 Billion you could say that he is the most important person in our computing lives today. If it were not for Tim Burners-Lee this blog will not exist, nor would amazon, ebay or facebook. He even ranked joint first in the Telegraph’s list of 100 greatest living geniuses.

Sir Tim Burners-Lee started the web and now runs it and may control the future of the internet for years to come.
