  • Berners-Lee the inventor and as he is often calledthe father of the Internet. It was him who created World Wide Web (WWW). Thisperson gave a start to the modern Internet network. He was a pioneer instarting a new era of Internet technologies.

It was announced on radio, TV, and in the press that the era of information technologies and Internet has begun, but not many people think about who was responsible for this.

It was only in 2004 when the names of the creator of WWW (Berners-Lee and his team) were announced at the annual ceremony which took place at the Royal Supreme Court, and the whole world learned about the initiators of the well-know Internet. They were awarded the honorary title of the greatest Englishmen of the year 2004!
