Guys, I’m like a week late with this blog and I thought I will just skip this assignment, but then I did a little research on this guy. Although his occupation states that he is only “Computer Programmer”, he turned out to be so much more. He invented just a tiny insignificant thing we called World Wide Web, which in my eyes makes him very important “dude”. During his college days in good old Oxford, Tim majored in physics and built his own computer out of spare parts. But that doesn’t show a fraction of his capabilities, I mean this guy is dedicated like you read about. He was also caught hacking during his stay at Oxford and banned from using the university’s computer. After graduating from Oxford in 1976, Tim worked on various programming projects before taking a position as a software engineer for CERN, the European particle physics laboratory in Switzerland, in 1980. During his stint at CERN he developed the first prototype of the World Wide Web. Tim Berners-Lee implemented the first successful communication between a Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP) client and server via Internet. He is also the director of the World Wide Web Consortium that oversee’s Web’s continued development.
All together, Tim Berners-Lee is very interesting guy and I think we can all learn a lot from him.
