Sir Tim Berners-Lee

By Hannah Hughes

Who is he

Sir Tim Berners-Lee is a British computer science man. Also he is the inventor of the WORLD WIDE WEB!!!

His full name is Timothy John Berners Lee.

He made a proposal for an information management system in March 1989, and on 25 December 1990, with the help of Robert Cailliau and a young student he fulfilled his first successful comunication.

When was he born and where he lived

He was born on the 8th of June 1955.

Also he lived in London, the most amazing place in the world. Emanuel school he went to as a child, then went to a college in Oxford. He studied physics there and made his own comuter out of spare parts. He was caught hacking into the computer system and was banned from them.

Berners-Lee moved on to other projects, in 1984. He set to work on distributed real-time systems for scientific data acquisition and system control. He soon found himself again faced with CERN's vast and shifting networks of projects and researchers, plus CERN's own rather cranky internal system for sharing and distributing scientific information.

Berners-Lee began to envision a global information space where computers around the world would be linked together, allowing researchers to surf from one body of data to another, gathering information related to their own work, while effortlessly sharing their insights and suggestions with other researchers.

Is he still doing what he does now?

Tim Berners-Lee is still doing what he does. His work is very useful and is easy to use. There are lots of hard things he did.

Now he is a director of the world wide web consortium.
