Tim Berners-Lee invented the World Wide Web and continues to shape its frantic evolution. He's neither rich nor famous, which is fine by him
In March 1989, Web inventor Tim Berners-Lee proposed a way to link together documents on different computers that were connected to the Internet.
Computer scientists, engineers and journalists converged on the CERN particle physics lab in the suburbs of Geneva, Switzerland, today to pay homage to a piece of paper—several pieces of paper, actually—that together form Tim Berners-Lee's March 1989 proposal that would come to be the blueprint for the World Wide Web.
Many of the Web sites we visit every day are under cyber attack by malicious hackers looking to disrupt business transactions, discourage people from using a particular online service or exact payback for some real or perceived slight.

It’s a lofty goal: make the World Wide Web truly global. Now, the Web's inventor says he'll try to do just that.
The new World Wide Web Foundation, founded by Tim Berners-Lee, will launch next year to bring the Web to people who don’t have ready access to it, the organization announced today — an effort that reflects what Berners-Lee says is the inherent populist nature of the Web.
