Congrats Sir Tim!

According to an article on the BBC’s website, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, is to receive an Order of Merit from the Queen of England.

I don’t think there is anyone who would argue with that award. Not alone did  Tim Berner-Lee invent the World Wide Web, but he made no attempt to patent it and that fact was one of the factors in its success.

Frankly, I don’t think there is a single person who has done as much to change the world for the better as Tim Berners-Lee.
