Berners-Lee to be knighted

The Queen of England will knight the inventor of the Web. Read the press release at http://www.w3.org/2003/12/timbl_knighted.
Tim Berners-Lee invented the concept for the web in 1989, and wrote the first functioning web server and browser software in 1990. To put that in historical perspective: TCP/IP was eight years old; it was two years before Al Gore was the first person to talk a lot about the “information superhighway”.
It was a long time ago in net time. Thanks, Tim.
